Umoja Group's story

Madame Emelide is a client of IMF Hekima and leads the banque villageoise “Umoja”. She is married, 50 years old, and the mother of 8 children who are in school. Her partner is a merchant.

She sells used clothing, and she began her business 10 years ago with starter funds from her husband. Later, she chose the Hekima program to support her business, and during this time she has progressively improved.

With this new loan, she is going to stock up on used clothing in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital. The difficulty of her work is related to theft and loss of merchandise.

She would like to renovate her home. Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support of unbankable entrepreneurs.
