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

A loan helped to stock up on a supply of used clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Tuombeane Ii Group's story

Nsumire is a client with the microfinance institution Hekima and represents the business group Tuombeane II. She is 41 years old, married and has eight children who are all enrolled in school; her partner is a salesman.

She established her business selling used clothing in 2004 using start-up funds she received from her husband. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up on bales of used clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue their studies and wants to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
