Mulinzi Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy used clothing for wholesale prices.

Mulinzi Group's story

Madelene is a client of IMF Hekima and presides over the banque villageoise called "Mulinzi." She is 52 years old, a widow, and the mother of three children, one of whom is in school and two other dependents.

Madelene has been selling used clothing since 2000. She started her business with funding from a previous financial settlement. Later on, she joined Hekima's program to support her business, and this has helped it grow over time.

With this new loan, Madelene will buy more used clothing for wholesale prices to bolster her financial capital. The challenge she faces with her business is a lack of capital.

Madelene would like to help the orphans who stay with her and whom she feeds along with her family. In closing, she would like to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they bring to entrepreneurs whose businesses can not be sold for cash.
