Mizeituni Group's story

Mado is a businesswoman, who is raising her hand in the picture, is president and member of the "Mizeitun" business group and a dynamic entrepreneur. She is a 41-year-old mother of six children, five of which currently attend school, the one remaining child still being an infant. This client sells sorghum. She sets up her merchandise outside her property, where she knew she would attract customers. Her spouse works in the medical profession as a nurse. She started her business with capital given to her by her husband. Later, she benefited from a loan from IMF Hekima. She has been running this business for two years. This new loan will allow her to buy four sacks of sorghum. In the future, she wishes to buy a plot of land, send her children to school and feed them.
Finally, she would like to thank Hekima for the work they do to liberate women entrepreneurs who are excluded from the established banking system, especially during this difficult post-conflict era in the east of the country.
