Tuinuwane Group's story

The client, Katungu, is an ambitious entrepreneur and the president of the loan group Tuinuane. She is 42 years old and has 5 young children. Her husband is a nurse.

She sells spices (tomatoes, peanuts, onions, ginger, etc.). She started her business about 4 years ago with money she received from her husband. IMF Hekima granted her a loan around 2010.

She sells her products in the central market of Virunga. This new loan will help her buy 4 cans of vegetable oil, ginger, tomatoes, etc. In addition, she would like to increase her savings so that she can start working on other revenue-generating activities. The profits from her business help her easily pay for school fees, food, medical care, etc. for the family.

She thanks Hekima for their support of female small business owners.
