A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy a box of Stella cigarettes.

Abariki Group's story

Nyane, a client, is an entrepreneur and the advisor for the business group "Abariki". She is 27 years old, married, and the mother of three. She and her husband mutually assist each other in their small business. She sells cigarettes at the Birere roundabout. She also sells salted fish for additional revenue. She has been in this business for five years. She started it with $50 from her husband.

This new loan must serve to supply her with cigarettes (a box of Stella) to be sold. Her ambition is to expand her enterprise, to educate her children, and to build a house.

As our client, Nyane thanks Hekima for acting in favor of the poor who are excluded from traditional banking. It's appropriate to note that the business group "Abariki" is primarily composed of women.

In this group: Sebazungu, Nyane, Vumilia, Faida, Kakundi, Kizungu, Vumilia, Bundwege, Alphonsine, Masika, Makindja, Nyirasafari , Bangwangwa, Belize, Kahambu, Nsekambabaye, Katsuva, Mutsogozi, Chiza, Bisimwa, Muhindo, Omari
