Batu Ni Bitu Group's story

Ms. Justine is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the banc villageois "Batu Ni Bitu". She is a widow, 48 years old, and mother of 9 children, 5 of whom are in school and 4 who have finished.
She is a spice seller; she started this business in 2007 with start-up funds received from a "tontine" (savings group). Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will source 2 cans of oil and spices, peanuts, tomatoes, and flavors, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the change in price, exchange rate, and police harassment.
She would like her children to go to school and to develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to owners of non bankable businesses. Customers prefer to be in the photo with their children.
