A loan of $5,000 helped a member ten containers of palm oil.


Tuchukuliane Group's story

Kavira M. is president of the Tuchukuliane group. She is 46 years old, married and mother to eleven children, one of whom is dead. All her other children are studying. Her husband is a teacher. She sells palm oil. She began her business with her own money and later on, around 2002 and after the eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano, she benefited from a loan of $50 from IMF Hekima. She sells her products at the market. This new loan will allow her to stock up with ten containers of palm oil. Her ambition is to buy a piece of land and build a beautiful house. This customer, Kavira M., thanks Hekima for its actions in favour of the poor, who have no access to classic banks. It should be noted that the Tuchukuliane group is made up of 15 members.

In this group: Bahati, Bauma, Chantal, Kavira, Oda, Lukoo, Ngabo, Ndaliya, Niyibizi, Basimire, Muhima, Sifa, Nabintu, Adio, Bora
