Lukoo Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock up on generic medicines and special medicines, which will bolster her initial capital.

Lukoo Group's story

Ms. Salome is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the 'banc villageois' named “LUKOO”. She is married, 43 years old, and the mother of five children, who are all attending school. Her partner is a merchant.

A vendor of pharmaceutical products, she started this enterprise in 2006 with startup funding from selling her farm field. Later on, she joined the Hekima program for supporting her enterprise, during which she worked progressively.

With this new loan, she will stock up on generic medicines and special medicines. This will bolster her initial capital. The business challenge has to do with the lack of a customer base.

She would like her children to continue with their schooling. And she would also like to feed her family. So, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash.
