A loan of $5,000 helped a member to purchase a parcel of land.


Tosheka Group's story

Bungilila, one of our clients and leader of the "Tosheka" business group, is a 43-year-old entrepreneur and a married mother of nine young children. Her husband is an evangelist pastor in a Pentecostal church. She sells secondhand clothing in a Katindo communal market. For five years now, she has been working these small, income-generating activities. At the same time, she has just taken out her 12th loan with the MFI Hekima. This new loan should help her to round out her financing (amounts in the bank) to purchase a parcel of land (her family’s project that is currently underway). In addition, she would like to see her children grow up comfortably and also expand her business. This client would like to thank Hekima for its work on behalf of poor women who don’t have access to conventional banks.
