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

A loan helped to buy 3 sacks of peanuts in order to increase her initial capital.

Matendo Group's story

Mrs. Claudine is a client of the Hekima MFI and she is the leader of the Matendo Group. She is 34 years old, married and the mother of 4 children who are all in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells peanuts. She started the business 8 years ago with start-up funding from her husband. Later on, she used the Hekima loan program to support her business, which has grown progressively.

With this new loan, she will buy 3 sacks of peanuts in order to strengthen her initial capital. The main difficulty she is facing is the lack of goods.

She hopes to buy a plot of land. She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide to business owners who cannot access bank funding in this context of global crisis resulting from Covid-19. The picture only shows the leader of the group due to Covid-19 restrictions.
