Tuungane Group's story

Mme Marie is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the
groupe villageoise, Tuungane. She is a 61 year-old widow with seven children of whom six are in school.

She sells food products and started this business in 1987 with the start-up capital received from her deceased husband. Since then, she joined the program with Hekima to support her business and with which she has gradually evolved as a businesswoman. With this loan, she will stock up on spices which will add to her working capital. The current challenge to her business is a lack of merchandise.

She would like for her children to continue with their education and to be able to renovate their homes. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to business owners without access to traditional banking services during this context of a global crisis related to COVID-19.
