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

A loan helped to buy beans, rice, detergent, oil, etc. which will reinforce her initial capital.

Tupatane Group's story

Madame Claudine is a client of Hekima and presides over the Tupantane Group. She is 50 years old and married. Of her seven children, four attend school and she is financial responsible for the other three as well. Her spouse is a mason.

Madame Claudine is a vendor of cooking products. She began her business 20 years ago with the financial backing of her husband. Later on she partnered with Hekima in order to support her business, which has expanded.

With this new loan, Madame Claudine plans to stock up on merchandise, including beans, rice, Omo (brand of detergent), oil, etc. This will allow her to reinforce her initial capital. The main difficulty her business faces is unpaid debt.

Madame Claudine's dream is that her children will continue their education and that she will be able to support her family.

Finally, Madame Claudine would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to non-bankable small business owners during the global Covid-19 crisis.

In order to maintain social distancing measures, only the group leader is photographed at this time.
