Tuchukuliane Group's story
Mukobelwa is a merchant. She is a member and the treasurer of the business group Tuchukuliane. She is an entrepreneur, 38 years old, married, and a mother of ten children. All of her children go to school. Mukobelwa has been selling vegetables for twenty years. She displays her goods in a town market. She started this business with funds from her husband, who works at a hotel in the area. This new loan will serve to buy amaranth, cabbage, eggplants, etc. Mukobelwa would like to educate, clothe, and feed her children. To finish, she strongly thanks Hekima for helping women who lack access to banking services become independent; especially during this critical post-conflict period in the east of the country.
