A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 8 sacks of manioc flour etc.

Anonymous's story

The client is a bravely ambitious 35 year old businesswoman with five young children who all study. She sells flour. Her husband is a dressmaker. She sets up her merchandise in an agricultural warehouse in Birere. She started her business with her own money that her husband gave her, then subsequently she received a further credit of 50$ from IMF Hekima. She has been doing these small money making activities for more than 8 years. However she has just received a further loan after 15 loans, from the micro-credit program IMF Hekima. This new loan will enable her to stock up on 8 sacks of manioc flour and the rest of the money will be used for modest investment and to help her husband. In addition, she wants to see her children grow up and build her house decently. The client thanks Hekima for their action dedicated to poor women to help them on the way to economic and financial emancipation.
