Mwito Group's story

Ms. Antoinette is a customer of the mfi Hekima and president of the 'banc villageois' « MWITO». She is 46 years old, married and mother of 6 children who all go to school.
Her partner is a government official.

She sells various products and she started this business in 2005 with the start-up funds received from her field. She got later involved with the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually grew. With this new loan, she will stock up on children's shoes, batteries, notebooks and children's clothing, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is related to insecurity and the dollar exchange rate.

She would like to build a house for the family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to non-bankable business owners in this context of global covid-19 crisis. The photo is only of the group leader because of covid-19.

In this group: Antoinette, Eliza, Micheline, Helene, Benjamin, Furaha, Jean Pierre, Chantal, Pascasie, Marina, Furaha, Noela, Dorcas, Passy, Jacques
