Musindi Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock up on beverages, sugar, juice, soap and Omo [laundry detergent] to strengthen her initial capital.

Musindi Group's story

Deborah is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and a member of the business group Musindi. She is 42 years old and single.

She has been selling various products in her store since 2004, when she established her business using start-up funds she received from a friend. Later she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, which has been developing progressively. With this new loan, she will stock up on beverages, sugar, juice, soap and Omo laundry detergent, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is linked to the lack of customers.

She would like to build a concrete house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support shown to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis caused by covid-19.
