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

A loan helped to buy two bales of second-hand clothes in bulk, to strengthen her initial capital.

Tuzale Group's story

Atosha is a customer of the microfinance institution Hekima and she is the president of the banc villageois "Tuzale". She is married, thirty six years old and the mother of six children who all go to school. Her husband is unemployed. Atosha is a seller of second-hand clothes and various products. She started this business in 2014 with starting funds from her husband. She later joined up a program with Hekima in order to support her business, during which she gradually made some progress. With this new loan, she will buy two bales of second-hand clothes in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital. The biggest challenge for her business is related to the dollar's conversion rate.
She wishes for her children to keep going to school and she would like to build a house. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they give to non-bankable business owners. The customers are sometimes photographed with their children.
