Tujikaze Group's story

Myatsi is advisor to the Tujikaze group. She is a dynamic entrepreneur; 58 years old, married and the mother of nine children who are all in school. Her husband is a driver. The group member is a nurse and an associate at the pharmacy.

She started with a credit loan through the local lekelemba (a variety of tontine, or local solidarity group). This was accomplished over 12 years ago.

This new loan will enable her to buy essential drugs (anti-inflammatory, antibiotics, syrups, anti-malarial, anti-diarrheal, etc.). Dealing with unpaid debts is a challenge for her. She wants schooling for her children.

In the end, she wishes to thank Hekima for its financial support. It should be noted that some group members carry their babies.
