Mapatano Group's story

Musoka is the leader of the "Mapatano" business group. She is a 40-year-old entrepreneur, married and the mother of 6 young children, all of whom go to school. Her husband is an evangelical minister for the local Pentecostal church. Musoka is a member of a sewing workshop located near her home in Ndosho, and has been earning money for her household in this way for 7 years. Her husband provided her with her start-up capital and she has since successfully completed 9 loan cycles with Hekima. She is requesting a new loan which she will use to buy sewing materials (15 meters of fabric, thread, lace, patterns, scissors, etc.). She wants to watch her children grow up comfortably and expand her business. Musoka would like to thank Hekima for helping underprivileged women excluded from regular bank lending channels.
