A loan helped a member to stock up on casserole dishes and plates which will reinforce her working capital.


Ineema Group's story

Mme Pascaline is a Hekima client and she oversees the village group INEEMA. She is married, 40 years old and the mother of two children who both attend school. Her spouse is out of work.

Ten years ago, Mme Pascaline began selling a variety of items using the start up funds provided by her husband. Later she became involved in the Hekima program to support her business which has developed progressively. With this new loan, she will buy casserole dishes and plates which will reinforce her working capital. There are no issues with her business.

Mme Pascaline would like her children to continue to attend school and also to purchase a plot of land. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and it partners for the support given to non-bankable business owners in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. The picture is of the leader only due to the social distancing measures necessitated by Covid-19.
