Dunda Mu Yesu Group's story

Kahindo Mbilize is the president of the Dunda mu Yesu group, and is 27 years old, married, and has 4 children, all of whom are in school. Her husband is a small shopkeeper. Like her husband, she also sells various items. She began her business with her own funds, provided by her husband 2 years ago. Later, she benefited from a $50 loan through the microfinance institution Hekima. She sells her products at the Nyabushongo market. This new loan will serve to increase her stock with 10 sets of ladies pagnes (a type of brightly printed cloth). In addition, she aspires to buy a plot of land and to build a house. The client Kahindo Mbilize is grateful to Hekima for its actions on behalf of the poor who are excluded from the traditional banking system. It should be noted that this group, Dunda mu Yesu, is composed of 44 members. The photo shown here was taken in front of the Catholic chapel in the Ndosho area, on Avenue Cariere.
