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


A loan helped stock up on 20 fire pits, which will strengthen her starting capital.


Msingi Bora Group's story

Madame Esperance is a client of the Hekima microfinance institution and oversees the Msingi Bora banque villageoise. She is married, 37 years old, and the mother of 10 children who are all in school. Her spouse is a trader.

She has been selling fire pits since 1991 and she started her business with funding received from her husband. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which she was steadily growing. With a new loan, she will stock up on 20 fire pits, which will strengthen her starting capital. The challenge she faces in her business is tied to a lack of goods.

She would like to build a beautiful house. Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners unable to use traditional banks, especially in the context of the COVID-19 global crisis.
