A loan helped a member to stock up with fabric and other sewing materials, which will build up her initial capital.

Nuru Group's story

Desanges is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the group « NURU ». She is married, 41 years old and the mother of 10 children, who are all in school. Her partner is a tailor. She is also a tailor. She started this business 17 years ago with start up funds received from her husband. Later, she involved the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she will progressively evolve. With this new loan she is going to stock up on fabric and other sewing materials which will build up her initial capital. The challenge of her business is tied to the lack of customers. She would like for her children to continue to study and that she feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners in the context of the global crisis tied to COVID-19. The picture is of only the group leader because of COVID-19.
