Manne Du Ciel Group’s story

Eugenie is a female entrepreneur, the owner of a pharmacy along the main road of her town, a member of the “Manne du Ciel” [Heavenly Manna] solidarity group, and a client of the IMF Hekima. She is married to a driver. She is 54 years old and has 13 children, six of whom are in school and seven are already done with their studies.

Eugenie will buy four boxes of pharmaceutical products to bolster her business. She launched her store 14 years ago with funds received from her husband. She would like to build a house and support and educate her children. To conclude, Eugenie thanks Hekima for its support of entrepreneurs who lack access to traditional banking.
