Nankafu is a client who represents the Riziki Mupya group. She is a 47 year old businesswoman, married and mother to 13 children all of whom are students and among whom there are solicitors, lawyers, and university students. She is a second hand clothes shopkeeper and accredited distributer of mobile phone cards. Her husband is a high ranking government official of the State Airways Agency (RVA).She lays out her merchandise at the roadside, at the entry to the RD Congo-Rwanda customs post. She has been practicing this activity for fifteen years. However, she has just reached the end of a cycle of 10 loans with the Hekima credit organisation. This new loan will enable her to purchase two balls of second hand clothing. In addition she intends to send her children to school. The client is grateful to Hekima for their actions in favour of poor women who are excluded from classic banking institutions. It should be noted that the Riziki Mupya business group is largely composed of women.
