A loan helped to stock up on used shoes in bulk.

Rafiki Group's story

Ms. Nikuze is a client of the microfinance institution HEKIMA and presides over the village group named “RAFIKI”; she is 51, married, and the mother of thirteen children, who are all schooled. Her partner is unemployed.

A vendor of used shoes, she started this enterprise with startup funds from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has been working progressively since then.

With this new loan, she will stock up on secondhand shoes in bulk, and this will bolster her initial capital. Her business faces no challenges at all.

She would like her children to go to school, and she would like to purchase a parcel of land. So, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash.
