Aksante Mungu Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to get supplies of 10 sacks of cement and a truckload of sand to produce cement blocks in order to strengthen her initial capital.

Aksante Mungu Group's story

Deodate is a customer of the Hekima MFI and president of the banc villageois "Aksante Mungu". Married and 39 years old, she is mother of three children who are all in school. Her partner is a welder.

She sells cement blocks and started this business 10 years ago with start-up funds from her husband. Later she joined the Hekima loan programme to support her work.

With this new loan, she will get supplies of 10 sacks of cement and a truck of sand for the production of cement blocks, in order to build on her initial capital. The challenge in this work is related to the rainy periods.

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