A loan helped to get supplies of shoes and women's clothing to resell.

Mufariji Group's story

Ms. Immaculee is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group “MUFARIJI”; she is married, 39 years old, and the mother of four children, all in school. Her husband is a taxi driver.

A vendor of various clothing, she began this enterprise ten years ago with startup funding from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has since been progressing in it.

With this new loan, she is going to get supplies of shoes and women’s clothing, and this will bolster her initial capital. The challenge in her work has to do with losses.

She would like to feed her family and for her children to continue studying. So, she wishes to say thank you to Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis related to COVID-19.
