A loan helped to stock up on avocados which will strengthen her initial capital.


Ushirika Group's story

Ms. Angeline, 36, is a client of the microfinance institute Hekima and president of the banc villageoise 'Ushirika'. She is married to a shopkeeper, and is a mother of three children — all of whom are educated. The photo only shows the group leader due to Covid 19.

Angeline has been selling fruits and vegetables for 4 years with startup funds received from her husband. Later, she was involved with the Hekima program to support her business during which time her business has continued to grow. With this new loan, Angeline will stock up on avocados which will strengthen her initial capital.

Her business is not without problems. Angeline would like her children to continue to study. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable business owners in the context of this Covid 19 global crisis .
