Kaskete is part owner of a booth where she sells various goods. She sets up the booth in a busy area of her neighborhood. She started her business with support from her husband, and later received a loan from the Hekima MFI. She has been conducting this activity for seven years.
Kaskete will use this new loan to buy various merchandise (2 bags of sugar, 1 jug of table oil, some matches, 2 boxes of candy, 2 boxes of cookies, 1 case of Fanta, 1 carton of juice, 1 box of lotion, some soap, 6 pagnes, 10 pairs of shoes and more.).
Her goals are to support her children’s education, expand her business and build a house. The challenges she is facing in developing her activity include selling on credit and exchange losses.
Kaskete wishes to extend her sincere thanks to the Hekima MFI for helping businesswomen excluded from traditional banking to become self-sufficient, especially in these critical times of war in the Eastern region.
