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


A loan helped to buy supplies of 10 sacks of charcoal, which will build on her initial capital.


Msingi Group's story

Cecile is a customer of the Hekima MFI and leader of the "Msingi" village group. She is married, 56 years old, and the mother of eight children who are all in school; her partner is unemployed.

She is a charcoal seller, having started this business in 2000 with start-up funds received from the Hekima programme to support her business; over the years she has progressively developed.

With this new loan, she will stock up on 10 sacks of charcoal, which will build on her initial capital. There are no challenges in her work. She would like to build a house for her family.

Lastly, she wishes to thank Hekima and partners for their support of non-bankable business owners in the context of the global crisis related to COVID-19. The photo is only of the group leader because of COVID-19.
