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

A loan helped to acquire a sack and a half of corn flour to make drinks, which will support her initial capital.

Tuamuke Group's story

Mme Veronique is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the banque villageoise Tuamke. She is married, 68 years old, and the mother of six children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She is a locally-produced beverage seller. She started this business 45 years ago with startup funds from her husband. Later, she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan, she is going to acquire one and a half sacks of corn flour to make beverages. This will support her initial capital. This challenge in her business is linked to multiple dependent family members.

She would like to continue to meet her family’s needs, such as power, rent, food, etc. Finally, she wants to think Hekima and its partners for supporting business-owners without means during this global crisis from Covid-19. The photo is only of the group leader due to Covid-19.
