Mama Inuka Group's story

Françoise is a dynamic and ambitious entrepreneur, and vice-president of the Mama Inuka group. She is around 43 years old, divorced and the mother of 6 children. She sells palm oil. She started her business with her own funds, which she received from her ex-husband before they got divorced. Later on, she benefited from additional funds in the form of loans from IMF Hekima to reinforce her capital. She has been in business for 3 years. She displays her products on the side of a road in the Ndosho district. This new loan should be used to buy supplies including 2 cans of palm oil, 2 bags of rice and 1 bag of beans. Her aim is to build up her savings account and make sure her children are properly clothed, fed and educated. The customer would like to thank Hekima for its actions in aid of impoverished women excluded from regular bank lending channels.
