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

A loan helped to buy sugar canes wholesale.

Tudumu Group's story

Jeannette is a client of the MFI Hekima and the president of the village group Tudumu. She's 60 years old, a widow and the mother of four children, who all went to school.

She sells sugar canes, a business she started 25 years ago with startup funds received from her late husband. Later on, she implicated Hekima's program to support her business, which enabled her to evolve progressively.

She will use this new loan to buy sugar canes wholesale, which will strengthen her initial capital. Her business doesn't face any problem. She would like to be able to feed her family and for her children to continue studying.

In the end, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting owners of non bankable businesses in this context of global crisis in connection with Covid-19.

Only the group leader appears in the photograph due to Covid-19 and to respect social distancing measures.
