Umoja Ni Mali 2 Group's story

Ms. Esperance is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the village group “UMOJA NI MALI 2”. She is married, 61 years old and mother of 2 children who are all in school, her partner is a civil servant.
She is a corn flour seller, she started this business since 1995 with the start-up funds received from her father-in-law. Later she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will source maize flour in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of this activity is linked to theft of hijacking of the product.
She would like her children to continue studying and develop her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis.
