Tusimame Imara Group's story

Marie Claire is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the village group « TUSIMAME IMARA ». She is married, 54 years old, and the mother of seven children, who are all in school. Her partner is without work.
She sells tea leaves and coffee. She started this business 10 years ago with funds received from her husband. Later, she involved the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively evolved. With this new loan she is going to stock up with three bags of tea leaves, which will build up her initial capital. The challenge in her business is tied to the lack of customers.
She would like her children to continue to study and that she feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners in this context of the global crisis tied to COVID-19. The photo is only of the leader of the group because of COVID-19.
