A loan helped to buy 50 bags of bulk flour to strengthen her initial supply.

Tunashukuru Group's story

Madame Aisha is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and president of the banque villageoise Tunashukuru. Married and 50 years of age, she is the mother of nine children, all of whom study. Her spouse is a merchant.

She sells flours, having started this business in 2008 with a launching loan she received from Hekima. With this new loan, she will procure 50 bags of bulk flour to reinforce her initial supply. The challenge for her business is linked to a lack of customers.

She wishes to send her children to school. In conclusion, she thanks Hekima and its partners for the support given to unbanked entrepreneurs.
