A loan helped to buy empty bags to increase her initial capital.

Rhugwasane Ii Group's story

Annociata is a customer of the MFI Hekima and president of the Rhugwasane II business group. She is a 58-year-old widow and the mother of five children who all attend school.

Annociata sells empty bags, a business she began in 2002 with start-up funds received from her deceased husband. Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, and it has gradually developed ever since. The main challenge in her business is the lack of merchandise. Annociata will use this new loan to buy empty bags to increase her initial capital.

She would like for her children to continue their education and she also wants to expand her business. She would like to thank Hekima and its partners for their support of owners of unbankable enterprises during this covid-19 global crisis.
