A loan helped to procure used shoes which will add to her working capital.

Furahini Group's story

Mme Justine is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the groupe villageoise « FURAHINI». She is a married 44 year old woman and mother of 6 children who all go to school. Her husband is a businessman.

She sells used shoes and started this business 23 years ago with start-up money she received from her husband. Now she has joined Hekima's program to support her business, and in which she has gradually evolved. With this loan she will procure used shoes which will increase her working capital. The challenge to her business is connected to the instability of the dollar exchange rate.

She would like her children to continue with their studies, to be able to feed her family and to be able to do construction. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the non-monetary support of business owners during this context of global crisis linked to Covid-19.
