A loan of $5,175 helped a member to buy 25 sacks of charcoal.

Mulangani Group's story

Hekima client Bikuba is the treasurer of the business group called «Mulangani» and a young entrepreneur with a lot of experience. She is 33 years old, married, and the mother of two children who both go to school. Her husband is a civil servant. The borrower sells charcoal. She owns a charcoal depot. She began her business with a loan from MFI Hekima and has been working at it for about four years.

This new loan will be used to buy 25 sacks of charcoal. The lack of public security in the places the charcoal comes from and the taxes levied by the environmental department are the big challenges to the development of her business. She is hoping to grow her working capital, buy a plot of land, and feed her children correctly. To finish up, she thanks Hekima sincerely for their support in terms of microloans to small entrepreneurs. Please note that one client is holding her baby.
