Ararati Group's story

The client Masika is a member of the business group Ararati, she is married, 46 years old and mother to 7 children. Her husband is a farmer. The client is a nurse by training and sells medication retail. She is a member of a small pharmaceutical office. She began her business with her own funds, so stemming from her salary. Later, she requested support from the IMF Hekima. This new loan will let her stock up in pharmaceutical products (2 boxes of paracetamol, 2 boxes of chloramphenicol, anti-paludals, anti-diarrheals, anti-inflammatories, and other generic medications). The client is comfortable with her business. The major challenge for her work is mostly taxes and having insufficient products in stock. Thus, she thanks Hekima for its support and empowerment of female entrepreneurs with small businesses.
