A loan of $5,175 helped a member to buy vegetables ("sombé", cassava leaves).

Ahadi Group's story

Francisca is the leader of the Ahadi business group. She is a 48-year-old entrepreneur and the mother of 10 children, 4 of whom attend school and some of whom are married. Her spouse is a master builder.

Francisca sells vegetables ("sombé", cassava leaves). She displays her products along the roadside. She started her business with her own funds, received from her husband. She has been in this line of work for 13 years. This new loan will be used to buy cassava leaves for resale. This vegetable-seller suffers great losses when there is a drought and too much sun shines down on her products. In the years to come, she would like to increase her capital and watch her children complete their studies. She would also like to thank Hekima for its financial support (microloans).
