Upendo Group's story

Mrs. Jeanette has been the representative of community bank Upendo for 10 years. She's an active client of the MFI Hekima. She's 62 years old, a widow and the mother of eight children, out of whom three still go to school. She's been selling meat at the local grand market for the past 29 years, a business she started with fundings received from her husband and, later on, from Hekima.

She will use this loan to buy one cow and five goats, pay for transport and strengthen her working capital. Her main worry is to see all her children go to the university. She sincerely thanks Hekima and its partners once again, for their devotion to supporting those who are excluded from the economy.
