Mutiifu Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to stock up on sewing materials (fabrics, yarns, poplin, buttons, lace, etc.) to supplement their business.
Mutiifu Group's story
Ms. Wema is a junior entrepreneur who owns a sewing workshop at her home in the popular district of the city. She is the leader and chair of the "Mutiifu" loan group and a client of the Hekima MFI. She is 32, married and mother of 4 children who all go to school. She started her business with her own funds received from her husband. Her spouse is a driver in a commercial company. With this new loan, she will stock up on sewing materials (fabrics, yarns, poplin, buttons, lace, etc.) to strengthen her business and provide her clients with a quality service. She would like to buy other sewing machines, create a modern workshop with new equipment and technology, and school and feed her children. In the end, she thanks Hekima and their partners for supporting non-bankable entrepreneurs.
