A loan of $8,175 helped a member to buy 500 liters of oil.


Asifiwe Group's story

The customer, Sauda, is a trader and she is also president and a member of the Asifiwe Banc Villageois. She is a dynamic entrepreneur, who is 42 years old, married and mother to five children, who are all studying. She sells palm oil and lays out her goods in a local market. She began her business with a first loan from Hekima and she continues to run her business thanks to the IMF Hekima loan. She has been carrying out her business for the past ten years. Her husband is a driver. This new loan will be used to buy 500 liters of oil. She would like to be able to build a beautiful house, educate, clothe and feed her children. Finally, she is extremely grateful to Hekima for enabling small businessmen and women who are excluded from the classic bank system to become autonomous, particularly during this difficult post-conflict period in the eastern region of the country.
