Tupatane Group's story

Madame Claudine is a client of microfinance institution Hekim and leads the banque villageois Tupatane. She is married, 49 years old, and has 5 children who are all in school. Her partner is a mason.

Claudine has been selling beverages since 2005. She started her business with start-up funds from Hekima, and it has grown progressively ever since. With this new loan, she will buy 42 cases of Fanta in bulk, which will increase her starting capital. Her business's main challenge is related to unpaid debts.

She would like to send her children to school and to feed her family. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to owners of non-bankable businesses.

The clients prefer to appear with their children in the photo.
