Uwe Macho Group's story

Ms. Claudette is a customer of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group "Uwe Macho." She is married, 44 years old, and is the mother of 6 children, two of whom are in school. Her partner is a shopkeeper.

She sells food in a restaurant. She started this business 3 years ago with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she became involved with the program Hekima to maintain her business, during which time it gradually progressed. With this new loan, she will stock up on rice, potatoes, oil, flour, etc., which will increase her start-up capital. The challenge of her work is linked to the rise in the rate of the dollar.

She would love for her children to continue studying. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to the owners of non-bankable businesses during the global crisis related to COVID-19. The photo is only of the leader of the group due to COVID-19.
