Jovial Group's story

Ms. Mushambarwa is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and the president of the 'banc villageois' called “JOVIAL”. She is 36, married, and the mother of seven children, all students. Her husband works in transportation. A vendor of foodstuff, she got startup funding from her husband fourteen years ago. Later on, she requested a Hekima loan to support her business.

With this loan, she is going to stock up on bananas to bolster her business. The business challenges include the poor condition of farm roads in the desert.

Her wish is to purchase a plot of land and to continue providing schooling to her children. So, she thanks Hekima and its partners for supporting unbanked entrepreneurs.
