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


A loan helped to buy children clothing and pagnes for women and to increase her working capital.


Tutashinda Group's story

Mrs. Pelagie is a client of the Hekima MFI and the leader of the Tutashinda Group. She is 52 years old, married and the mother of 6 children who are all in school. Her partner is unemployed. She started selling clothing in 1980, a business she started with start-up funds from her husband. Later on, she used the Hekima program to support her business which has progressively developed.

She wants to use this new loan to buy children clothing and pagnes for women and to increase her working capital. She has no challenges in her business and she hopes to expand it. She wants to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who cannot access bank funding in this context of global crisis resulting from Covid-19. The picture only shows the leader of the group due to Covid-19 restrictions.
