A loan of $5,000 helped a member to pay for 40 sacks of cement.


Ujumbe Group's story

Tegera is a client and the leader of the business group "Ujumbe". She is a young entrepreneur, 35 years old, and the mother of six little children, who are still in primary school. She is a seller of cement and construction supplies and equipment. Her husband is a master mason. She sets up her merchandise in a warehouse located along ULPGL Blvd. She has been working in small-scale revenue-generating businesses like these for eight years.

However, Tegera just completed nine loan cycles with Hekima. This new loan must serve to provide her with 40 sacks of cement to sell. In addition, she would like to see her children grow up comfortably and to expand her business.

Our client thanks Hekima for its actions in favor of poor women excluded from traditional banking.
