A loan helped a member to buy a bale of second-hand clothing.


Uamusho Group's story

Julienne is a client of the micro-finance institution Hekima and a older, experienced entrepreneur. She is the leader of the loan group "Uamusho." She has worked selling second-hand clothing for about 20 years and sells her goods at the central town market. She started this business with funds she received from her husband.

Julienne is 54 years old and a mother of nine children and several grandsons, all of whom are in school.

With this new loan, she is going to buy a bale of second-hand clothing to increase her selling capacity. She is an optimist who wishes to progress in her business and educate her children.

Finally, Julienne thanks Hekima and their partners for their support to female entrepreneurs who lack access to banking services. Thanks to loans from Hekima, she can take care of her children.
