Mikamba sells various goods and is a member of a shop. She lays out her items at her home, [which is on] a busy street. She is seeking a loan from Hekima in order to grow her businesses and is going to purchase various manufactured goods. She began with funds received from her husband when he was still living.
In the future, Mikamba would like to augment her business, purchase a plot of land, feed her children, send them to school, and provide them with health care. She is thankful to Hekima for supporting businesswomen left out of the traditional banking system, providing them with unsecured loans, especially following the conflicts in Eastern Congo.
[Please note] in the group photo, several clients are carrying their children.
