Tuungane 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 with sewing materials: wholesale rolls of fabric etc., to boost her initial capital.

Tuungane Group's story

Anna is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the Tuungane Banc Villageois. She is 46 years old, married and mother to six children, who are all at school. Her partner is a teacher.

She sells sewing materials and began this business in 1992 with starting capital given to her by her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to get support for her business, which she has progressively built up during this time.

With this new loan she is going to get fresh supplies of wholesale sewing materials: rolls of fabric, etc., in order to boost her initial capital. The challenge in her activity is the lack of customers in this crisis period.

She would like her children to carry on going to school. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable business owners.
