Rhulangane 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 rice, Omo, sugar, and flour to resell.

Rhulangane Group's story

Ms. Francoise is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group named “RHULANGANE”. She is married, 39 years old, and the mother of five children, who are all in school. Her husband is a government representative.

A vendor of various grocery items, she began this enterprise ten years ago with startup funding from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program for supporting her enterprise and has since been progressing in it.

With this new loan, she is going to stock up on rice, Omo [detergent], sugar, and flour, thus bolstering her capital. The challenge in her business has to do with missing customers.

She would like to build a house and for her children to continue in their studies. So, she would like to say thank you to Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis related to COVID-19.
