Umoja Group's story

Madame Chantal is a client of IMF Hekima. She is in charge of the “Umoja” banque villageoise. She is 44 years old, married, and the mother of five children, one of whom is still in school.

She sells cassava in the city’s central market with seed funding from her late family members. With this loan, she will buy 32 sacks of cassava flour (including transportation) to bolster her business.

She wants to open a large cassava warehouse in her area and to feed and educate her children. She thanks Hekima and their partners for the support they give to the financially disadvantaged.
