Kalimurhima Group's story

The customer, Safi, is leader of the "Kalimurhima" loan group and a customer of Hekima for the past four years. She is 47 years old, married and mother to seven children, five of whom are studying. She entered the trading sector at 17 years old with funds given to her from her parents' rural activities.

With the loan she has now received, she is going to buy four tons of cassava flour, including the cost of its transport. She is planning to start raising goats in the near future. Filled with joy, she thanks Hekima and its partners for their initiative in supporting women who have been economically abandoned.
