A loan of $6,000 helped a member to invest in his farming projects and buy a plot of land.

Don Bosco Group's story

Fikiri is a teacher in a school belonging to the Don Bosco network. He is 37 years old, married, and the father of six children who are all in school. This client also carries out some farming projects in order to support his household financially. He receives help from his wife in these small-scale projects. Some of the money from this new loan will help Fikiri to strengthen his existing projects and the rest will serve as a deposit on a plot of land. This client deplores the troubles that are occurring in the province, which are causing largely negative collateral effects for his projects. He is grateful to Hekima for their support with this micro loan.
