A loan of $4,675 helps a member to stock up on oil, rice, and flour, which will build on her initial capital.


Tunashukuru Group's story

Mme Aisha is a customer of Hekima IMF and chairs the groupe villageoise Tunashukuru. She is married, 50, and a mother of 13 children who are all in school. Her husband is unemployed.

She sells food products and launched her business in 2009 with an initial capital received from Hekima. Their support enabled her business to gradually progress.

With this new loan, she is going to stock up on oil, rice, and flour, which will reinforce her initial capital. The challenge for her business is the lack of customers.

She would like to feed her family and for her children to continue to study. Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support for business owners who do not have access to traditional banking, especially in the context of the Covid-19 global crisis.
