A loan helped to bulk-buy onions and garlic to strengthen her initial capital.


Tujiunge Pamoja Group's story

Madame Josephine is a client of the Hekima MFI and runs the Tujiunge Pamoja solidarity group. She is 47 years old and a mother to nine children who are all in school. Her husband is a shopkeeper.

Madame Josephine has been a shopkeeper selling food products since 1998 and set up her business with seed money from her husband. With this loan, she will bulk-buy onions and garlic to strengthen her initial capital.

The current challenge for her business is a lack of customers due to an unfavourable economic cycle. Her plan for the future is to grow the business and build a permanent house. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the financial support they provide to non-bankable micro-entrepreneurs.
