Ukweli Group's story

Mrs. Jeanette is a client of the Hekima MFI and the president of the UKWELI group. She is 45 years old and married with 8 school-educated children. Her spouse is an itinerant vendor.

Jeanette sells small fried fish. She launched this activity in her youth at age 20 with startup funds supplied by her father. She later joined Hekima to sustain her business which showed gradual progress. She will use this new loan to buy 5 sacks of small fry. She faces no problems in her activity.

Jeanette's goals are to repair her house and to expand her activity. She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs during the global Covid-19 crisis.
