Tusikilizane Group's story

She plans to use this loan in order to purchase a supply of a dozen pagnes (traditional West African printed cloth garments), and 10 cases of soft drinks. She is incredibly thankful to the organization of Hekima for having encouraged a low-income woman to work for herself.
