A loan of $4,000 helps a member to stock up with 10 dozen bowls and some plates.


Murhula Group's story

Ms. Yvonne is a client of the microfinance institution Hekima and presides over the village group named “MURHULA”; she is married, 54 years old, and the mother of nine children, all provided with schooling. Her partner is a mason.

A vendor of a variety of dish ware, she started this enterprise ten years ago with startup funding from her husband. Later on, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her enterprise and has since been working progressively in it.

With this new loan, she will stock up with 10 dozen bowls and some plates, and this will bolster her initial capital. The challenge in her business has to do with missing customers.

She would like to develop a secondary business raising pigs and for her children to continue their studies. So she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners lacking cash during this global crisis linked to COVID-19. The photo shows only the group leader because of COVID-19, so as to respect social distancing measures.
