A loan helped a member to buy generic and proprietary medications.


Lukoo Group's story

Salome is a customer of the IMF Hekima and the leader of the Lukoo village group. She is married, 47 years old, and the mother of 5 children who all attend school. Her partner is a retailer.

She sells medicine in a pharmacy. She started her business in 2006 with start-up funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima in order to strengthen her business, which is gradually progressing. She will use this new loan to buy generic and proprietary medications. Her main business challenge is connected to state taxes.

She would like to see her children continue with their education and to be able to feed her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they are giving to owners of non-bankable businesses during the covid-19 epidemic.

Note: because of social distancing measures, only the group leader is pictured.
