Tupatane Group's story

Buta is the leader of the "Tupatane" business group. She is a young entrepreneur of 28 years, married and the mother of 4 young children. Her husband teaches at a teachers' training college and she sells manioc flour. She has been a trader for 2 years and sells her wares at the regional market of Ndosho-CAJED. Buta got her initial start-up capital from IMF Hekima and has successfully completed 2 loan cycles with the institution. She will use this latest loan to buy a sac of manioc flour for resale. Buta would like to see her children grow up comfortably and expand her business. She would like to thank Hekima for helping underprivileged women excluded from regular bank lending channels.
