Utulivu Group's story

Nzeyi, who is a member of the Utulivu business group, is a 25 year old business woman and single. She sells onions and garlic. She sets up shop in a vending place in the agricultural commercial centre at Birere. She has been in this business for 3 years. However she has just finished 4 credit cycles with Hekima. This new loan will enable her to buy stock of 1 sack of onions and 3 sacks of garlic. In addition she hopes to purchase a plot of land for her family and build on it. The client is grateful to Hekima for their activities in favour of poor women who do not have access to classic banking institutions. It should be noted that the Utulivu business group is predominately feminine and represented by a single girl who is the leader.
