Maman Tusogezane Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock up on potatoes, beans, juices, flour, and oil for her restaurant business.

Maman Tusogezane Group's story

Ms. Esperance is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group “MAMAN TUSOGEZANE”; she is married, 42 years old, and the mother of seven children, all in school. Her partner is a taxi driver.

A food seller in a restaurant, she began this enterprise in 2011 with startup funding from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has since been progressing in it.

With this new loan, she is going to stock up on potatoes, beans, juices, flour, and oil, and this will bolster her initial capital. Her business does not have any problems.

She would like to feed her family and for her children to continue studying. So, she wishes to say thank you to Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis related to COVID-19.
