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

A loan helped to buy 400 litres of fuel.

Mapendo Group's story

Leontine is a client of Hekima IMF and leads the Mapendo Group. She is thirty-four years old and married with two children, who are in school. Her husband is a mechanic.

She sells fuel. She started her business in 2016 with funds received from her husband. Later, she became involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which it gradually grew. With this new loan, Leontine will obtain 400 litres of fuel, which will strengthen her original capital. The challenges she faces with her business result from a lack of a point of sale.

She would like her children to continue their studies and she would like to buy a house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of businesses with no cash value in the midst of the Covid-19 global crisis.
