A loan of $4,175 helped a member to purchase 8 bags of beans.

Les Chérubins Group's story

Yvone is the president of the borrowing group "Les chérubins" ("The cherubs") and is an experienced, dynamic entrepreneur. She is 42 years old and the mother of 7 children, all of whom attend school. Her husband is a nurse in a community medical center.

Yvone sells beans. She displays her wares at a farm stand, and began her business with the loan from the MFI Hekima. She has been in business for 2 years.

This new loan will allow her to purchase 8 bags of beans. Yvone hopes to educate her children, expand her business offerings, and to build an attractive home for her children. Rebel looting and insecurity in her supply zones are challenges for her business. In closing, she sincerely thanks Hekima for their support of autonomy of female entrepreneurs not eligible for traditional banking, especially during this critical war period in the east of the country.
