A loan of $5,000 helped a member to pay for 150 kilos cassava flour.


Anonymous Group's story

The customer is a member of the loan group Riziki. She is an energetic woman and an experienced entrepreneur aged sixty. She retails cassava flour. Her husband is a civil servant working for the government. She started her business when she got married. Three years ago, she was informed of micro-loans granted by IMF Hekima. She thus benefited from her first $50 loan, which she used to strengthen her business. She allocates profits from her business to savings, food, and to contribute to her children's school fees. She was just granted her 12th loan; however, in this period, this customer has seen her business prosper. She therefore decided to increase the loan amount for this new cycle. This latest loan will be used to procure 150 kilos of cassava flour. Additionally, she wishes to see her children grow up and to rebuild her house, as she was recently stricken by a fire which consumed her house and all her belongings. The customer thanks Hekima for it actions fostering self-sufficiency for poor women excluded from traditional banking.
