Burume's story

He is an educator. He has been teaching for 15 years. His wife sells groceries in order to provide supplementary income for their household. Mr. Burume B. has received a loan from IMF Hekima for various family projects (housing construction and the retail business). As a client of Hekima, Burume Bismimwa appreciates its assistance to the poor who are excluded from the traditional banking system, such as teachers in Congo.
