Kalimurhima Group's story
Alfonsine is a customer of the IMF Hekima and presides over the village group « KALIMURHIMA». She is married, 47 years old and the mother of six children, all of whom go to school. Her partner is a driver. She sells used clothing. She started this business five years ago with her own start up funds. Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively evolved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up with bundles of used clothing, which will build up her working capital. The challenge in her business is tied to the poor selection of merchandise. She would like for her children to continue to study and to develop her business. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to unbankable business owners in the context of the global crisis tied to COVID-19. The photo is only of the leader of the group because of COVID-19 and respecting social distancing measures.
