Busime Group's story
Kikandi is a shopkeeper and a member of the Busime banque villageoise, a client of IMF Hekima. She is a 39-year-old married mother to four children, all of whom are currently attending school. Kikandi has been selling food produce at a market in town for the past 17 years. She started this business with funds given to her by her family. Her husband works as a civil servant. She wishes to purchase 20 sacks of beans. She hopes to increase her capital, as well as be able to educate and feed her children. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima for the support they give to entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system.
