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


A loan helped to buy Vaseline papers, fabrics and zippers, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Tupiganishe Group's story

Ms. Nadine is a client of Hekima MFI and treasurer of the village group "TUPIGANISHE". She is married, 29 years old and mother of 4 children who are all in school. Her partner is a teacher.

She sells sewing materials. She started this business in 2016 with the start-up funds received from her husband. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will buy Vaseline papers, fabrics and zippers, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is related to the stock shortage due to the delay of delivery by the suppliers.

She would like her children to continue studying and she would also like to develop her business.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only shows the leader of the group due to covid-19, in compliance with social distancing measures.
