A loan helped to stock up on fresh fish at wholesale in order to strengthen her business.


Umoja Kibabi Group's story

Anastasie is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and president of the Umoja Kibabi banque villageoise. She is a thirty-eight year old widow with four children who are all in school.

Anastasie sells fresh fish. She began her business in 2008 with start-up funds given by Hekima. With this new loan, Anastasie will stock up on fresh fish at wholesale in order to strengthen her business. The challenge in her business is linked to a lack of customers.

Anastasie wishes to put her children through school and feed her family. Finally, Anastasie would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to non-bankable entrepreneurs.
