Shangwe Group's story
Muhindo is a retailer and the president of the Shangwe community bank. She is also a client of Hekima and married to a technician. Muhindo is 43 years old and she has four children who all go to school. She started her own business with a capital received from her husband. For the past eight years, she has been selling various clothing items in a shop, in town. Muhindo is going to buy jackets, "pagnes" (colorful African fabrics), pants, shirts, shoes, skirts and "Singlin" underwear. She would like to make more profits and be able to feed her children and cover their school fees. She thanks Hekima for the support they provide to entrepreneurs with no access to the traditional banking system.
