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

A loan helped to buy Bralima and Brasimba beverages.

Inawezekana Group's story

Nicole is a client with the micro-finance institution Hekima and the president of the village group called "Inawezekana." She is a widow, 50 years old, and a mother of four children, who are all grown.

Nicole sells beverages, a business she started 15 years ago with start-up funds she received from her father. Later, she joined Hekima to support her business, which continues to evolve. With this new loan, she is going to buy beverages from Bralima and Brasimba, which will strengthen her initial capital. One challenge in her business is unpaid debts.

Nicole would like her children to continue in school and to build a house. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and their partners for their support to business owners who lack access to banking services in the context of this global COVID-19 crisis.
