Mkono Mkononi Group's story

Effrasie is a client of the Hekima MFI and president of the banc villageois "Mkono Mkononi". Married and 50 years old, she is mother of 12 children who are all studying; her partner is a mason.

She is a seller of various goods. She started this business 10 years ago with initial funds given to her by her husband. Then she took a loan from Hekima to support her work.

With this new loan, she will buy biscuits, sugar, and Omo wholesale to strengthen her business. The challenge in this work is related to the instability of the US dollar rate.

She wants to educate her children and grow her business. Finally, she thanks Hekima and partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs.

The group members want to be with their children in the photo.
