Furahini Group's story

Madame Justine is a client of IMF Hekima and is a dynamic, entrepreneurial and experienced businesswoman. She sells shoes at the local market of CADECO and is the group leader of 'FURAHINI'. She is 44 years old, married and has six children, all in school. She has been working in this business since 1998. She set it up with financial support from her husband. With this new loan, she is going to buy four bundles of shoes to grow her business and offer her customers high-quality shoes. She hopes to become a wholesaler, and cover the costs of her children's food and education. Lastly, she is grateful to Hekima and its partner for the support they give to entrepreneurs who aren't supported by banks. Thanks to loans from Hekima, she is able to take good care of her children.
