Mama Inuka Group's story

The client, Françoise, is a dynamic and ambitious entrepreneur. She's the secretary of the group, Mama Inuka, and is 42, divorced, and the mother of 6 children. She has been selling palm oil for about 2 years.

She started her business with money that she received from her ex-husband before they divorced. Later on, she received a loan from IMF Hekima to reinforce her capital.

She sells her products on the side of the road in the Ndosho district. She will use this new loan to buy 2 barrels of palm oil, 2 bags of rice, and one bag of beans.

In addition, she would like to increase her savings. She would also like to educate, feed, and comfortably clothe her children. The client thanks Hekima for their actions to help disadvantaged people excluded from traditional banking.
