Mkono Mkononi Group's story

Clemence is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and president of the ‘banc villageois’ Mkono Mkononi. She is married, aged 45 years and the mother of 10 children, 5 of whom are in school. Her partner is a motorcyclist.

She sells used shoes. She began this business 5 years ago with the startup funding received from her husband. Later she partnered with the Hekima programme to support her business, through which she progressively evolved.

With this new loan, she will purchase stocks of 50 pairs of used shoes that will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge facing her business is due to trouble with the police.

She would like her children to go to school. Finally, would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of owners of businesses who have no cash value.

The customers prefer to be with their children in the photo.
