Maisha Group's story

Our client Kakule, leader of the «Maisha » group, is a young entrpreneur, 34 years of age, married and the mother of three young children, all of whom go to primary school. Her husband is a teacher. She is a partner in a pharmacy. She has her shop set up in a commercial building. She has been doing this work to earn a bit of extra income for 13 years already. She just completed eight loan cycles with Hekima. Her starting capital of $300 was received from her husband, when he used to work for an international organization. This new loan will allow her to renew her stock by buying five boxes of common generic mediations for resale. In addition, she would like her children to grow up in comfort and to expand her business. This client thanks Hekima for its work in support of impoverished women who do not have access to traditional banking.
