A loan helped a member to buy 60 cans of fresh milk, transport included, to boost her business.


Uzima Group's story

The client, Ange, is president of the "banque villageoise" Uzima and an active member of the IMF Hekima. For over 16 years, she has been selling milk in the main market in town and also in the dairy shops. She began with a starting capital that she received from her husband who had succeeded through Hekima. She is 42 years old, married and has five children who are all studying. With this loan she will buy 60 cans of fresh milk, transport included, to boost her business. She wants to see all her children schooled in good conditions in the town pilot schools. She has been moved to joy following the financial initiatives that have come from the donors and she thanks Hekima and its partners.
