Tusaidiane Group's story

Kahambu is a member of the Tusaidiane business group. She is married and the mother of three young children. Kahambu is a seamstress and works with her husband in tailoring. She is a member of a small tailoring workshop, organized in her home. She began her business with her own funds and has been in business for about 15 years. Kahambu later requested aid from Hekima, and she has recently completed 13 cycles in its microcredit program. The main challenge in her line of business is its cyclical nature; she often has large orders during holiday periods. This new loan will allow her to buy sewing supplies (fabrics, thread, ribbon, lace, poplin, etc.). She wants to grow her business. Kahambu thanks Hekima for its support and for helping women entrepreneurs to gain independence.
