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


A loan helped to buy bulk supplies of onions, which will build on her initial capital.


Tumsifu Group's story

Veronique is a customer of the Hekima MFI and leader of the "Tumsifu" group; she is married and 50 years old. She is a mother of seven children, of whom three are in school and four are no longer studying due to lack of means. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells onions and started this business 10 years ago with start-up funds received from the Hekima programme to support her business; over the course of this she has progressively developed.

With this new loan, she will get bulk supplies of onions, which will build on her initial capital. She faces no challenges in her work. She would like her children to continue to study and to feed her family.

Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and partners for their support of non-bankable business owners in this global COVID-18 crisis. The photo is only of the group leader because of COVID-19.
