A loan helped to buy wholesale cartons to reinforce her initial capital.

Tujikaze Group's story

Ms. Mamy, 40, is a client at IMF Hekima and is the person in charge of the unified Tujikaze group. She is a mother of seven children, all of whom go to school, and her partner is a technician in a private company.

As a result of start-up funds from her husband 12 years ago, Ms. Mamy is now a trader dealing with hardware products. With this loan, she will buy wholesale cartons to reinforce her initial capital. The challenge in this business is a shortage of funds to buy the necessary products her customers need.

Ms. Mamy's goal in the future is to build a permanent house and increase the business. She thanks Hekima and its partners for their financial support towards non-bankable small business owners.
