A loan helped a member to buy phones.

Jehovah Jireh Group's story

Madame Nsimire is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and head of the Jehovah Jireh group. She is 32 years old, married to an aid worker, and has 4 children—3 in school and one who is not yet school aged.

Nsimire sells phones. She started her business in 2015 with startup funds from her husband. Later, she got involved in the Hekima program to support her business, and it has grown progressively since then. Her business's main challenge is related to lack of merchandise. With this new loan, she will buy phones wholesale, which will increase her capital. She wants to build a sturdy home.

Nsimire would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable businesses.

The clients prefer to have their children in the photo.
