Mwito Group's story

Mrs. Antoinette is a customer of the MFI Hekima and the president of the village bank Mwito. She's 45 years old, married and the mother of six children, who all go to school. Her partner is a state agent.

She sells various clothes, a business she started in 2005 with start-up funds obtained by selling a plot. Later on, Hekima got involved to support her business and she made some progress.

She will use this new loan to buy children's clothes wholesale, which will strengthen her initial capital. Her business' challenge is connected to insecurity, which prevents going to the village to retail.

She would like her children to continue to go to school. In the end, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to owners of non-moneymaking businesses.
