Dunda Mu Yesu Group's story

Tatine is a merchant and a member of the Dunda Mu Yesu business group. She is an entrepreneur, 32 years old, married, and a mother of five children, of whom two study and the other three are still toddlers.

Tatine has been selling different types of construction materials for five years. She displays her goods in a warehouse in a busy party of town. She started her business with funds from her husband, who is a technician and carpenter.

This new loan will serve to buy 30 sacs of cement, 150 sacs of lime, varnish, etc.

Tatine wishes to increase her capital, and feed, clothe, and educate her children.

Finally, she strongly thanks Hekima for their support to female entrepreneurs who lack access to financial services, especially during this critical post-conflict time in the eastern part of the country.
