Tuhimizane Group's story

Ms. Agnes is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the village group “Tuhimizane”. She is married, 62 years old and mother of 9 children who are all in school; her partner is unemployed.
She is a food seller, she started this business in 1990 with the start-up funds received from her husband. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually grew. With this new loan, she will stock up on 1 can of oil, peanuts and rice, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is related to the rising dollar rate.
She would like her children to continue studying and to rehabilitate her house. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses in this context of the global Covid-19 crisis.
