Nuru Group's story

Desange, the customer, is the leader of the Nuru group. She is 33 years old, married and the mother of 3 children who go to school. She is a dressmaker and a member of a dressmaking and sewing workshop. She works together with her husband in this business. She started her business around 2002 with her own money and later received credit from MFI Hekima. She set up her workshop at the Virunga central market. This new loan should enable her to restock on fabric for women's clothing, fabric with which to make men's vests, golden brown buttons, poplin and other items. The customer thanks Hekima for its actions in aid of poor women excluded from regular banks.
