A loan of $5,000 helped a member to buy 2 quarters of beef.


Nuru Group's story

Moseka is a client and the leader of the business group "Nuru". She is 33 years old, an entrepreneur, married, and the mother of seven children, who are all in school. She sells meat retail. Her husband is also a butcher and a partner in a butcher shop. Moseka sets up her merchandise at the sector market Afia Bora. She has been in this business for twelve years. Yet, she just completed four loan cycles with Hekima. This new loan must serve her to stock up on two quarters of beef. Her ambition is to educate her children and to buy a motorbike, a jeep, and a plot of land in the VIP residential district.

This client is thankful for Hekima for its actions favoring poor women who are excluded from traditional banking. It is appropriate to note that the business group "Nuru" is composed mostly of women. One of the clients is happily holding her baby.
