Maendeleo Group's story

Sekunda is a client of the Hekima MFI and the leader of the Maendeleo village group. She is married, 46 years old, and the mother of 10 children who (have) all attend(ed) school. Her spouse is a street seller.

She sells food products. She started her business 5 years ago with start-up funds she received from her husband. Later, she joined Hekima so that she could strengthen her business, and she's been making steady progress since.

She will use this new loan to buy eleven sacs of flour. Her main business difficulty is a lack of customers.

She would like her children to be able to continue with their education, and to have enough food for her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they are giving to owners of non-bankable businesses during this pandemic.
