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

Buhanyiri Group's story
Saasita is a businesswoman and member of the community borrowing group called «Bahanyiri». She is a client of MFI Hekima, aged 32, married to a male nurse, and the mother of two children, both enrolled in school. She has been selling various sorts of African print cloth in a local marketplace for five years. Saasita began her business with money received from her husband. She is going to buy 80 lengths of pagne (cloth). She hopes to grow her working capital, keep her children in school, and feed them. In closing, she thanks Hekima for the support it brings to entrepreneurs who are not served by the conventional banking system.
