Unite Group's story
Odila is president of the community bank, "UNITE", which sells empty plastic cans at one of the public markets in the centre of town and is also a customer of the IMF Hekima. She is 59 years old, married and mother of 12 children, 4 of which are still in school. She has been in this business from a young age using funds from her brother and Hekima has supported her. With this loan, she will buy 80 empty cans and the transport for them to boost her initial capital. She plans to put all her children through a good school until university and also buy a piece of land. She thanks Hekima and its partners for their support for those who are struggling economically.
