but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy corn and mustard, which will reinforce her initial capital.

Tujikaze Group's story

Madame Adolphine is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the "Tujikaze" village group; she is married, 60 years old, and mother to five children, now independent, and five grandsons who all attend school. Her partner is unemployed.
She sells local drinks, she started this business ten years ago with startup funds received from her children. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she evolved progressively. With this new loan she will buy corn and mustard, which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenges faced by her business are the lack of clientele, and rain.
She would like her grandsons to continue to study and she would like to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they offer to business owners without traditional banking access in this context of global crisis related to Covid-19.
