A loan helped a member to buy oil, rice, and cassava flour to bolster her initial capital.


Mungu Atujaliye Group's story

Madame Fifi is a client of IMF Hekima and oversees the banque villageoise "Mungu Atujaliye." She is 48 years old, married, and the mother of nine children who are all educated. Her partner is a retail trader.

Fifi sells various grocery items. She began her business in 2001 with startup capital from her husband. Later on, she joined Hekima's program to support her business, which has grown over time.

With this new loan, Fifi will buy oil, rice, and cassava flour to bolster her initial capital. The challenge with her business is tied to the instability of the American dollar.

Fifi would like to build a school for applied studies. In closing, she wants to thank Hekima and their partners for the support they bring to businesses that can not be sold for cash.
