A loan of $5,000 helped a member to buy 4 bunches of bananas and a basket of avocados.


Mufariji Group's story

Mapendo is a client and the leader of the business group "Mufariji". She is an entrepreneur, 45 years old, married, and the mother of twelve children who have all had schooling. Three of them already have their own homes.

Mapendo sells bananas, and her husband is a tailor-clothier. She sets up her bananas at the community market of Katindo-Alanine. She has been operating small revenue-generating businesses of these types for ten years. However, she has just completed ten loan cycles with Hekima. This new loan must serve to buy a supply of fruit (4 bunches of bananas and a basket of avocados) to be sold. In addition, her ambition is to educate her children and to develop another enterprise.

Our client thanks Hekima for its actions favoring poor women who are excluded from traditional banks. It is appropriate to note that the business group Mufariji is composed mostly of women.

In this group: Mapendo, Safari, Anne, Nuyibiza, Kambumbale, Namuruya, Nsimire, Kahindo, Salamu, Fitina, Noella, Kahindo, Bulambo, Masumbuko, Kanane, Vumilia, Charlotte
