Maombi Group's story

Bushashire is an entrepreneur, and leader of the Maombi business group, which consists mostly of women. She is 48 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She and her husband support each other in running their small business. She sells firewood, and she also owns a kiosk where she sells sundries. She has been doing this for over 10 years. Bushashire has just completed her 14th loan cycle with the Hekima MFI. She originally started her business with a sum of $30 received from her husband. This new loan will serve to stock up on merchandise for her kiosk (1 carton of soap, 1 box of candy, 50 kg of sugar, some lotion, some Omo detergent, matches, toothbrushes, etc.). She plans to expand her business, send her children to school, and build a block of houses for leasing. The client Bushashire wishes to thank the Hekima MFI for helping the less fortunate who do not have access to traditional banks.
