Anonymous Group's story

The leader of the "Zawadi" business group is an entrepreneur and 47-year-old married mother of nine young children, all of whom are in school. Her husband is a small merchant. She sells basic foodstuffs such as peanuts, ndagala (a type of fish), etc. For 12 years, she has run small income-generating activities like this one. However, she has just obtained her 18th loan from Hekima. This new loan is meant to allow her to supply herself with two bags of groundnuts, one bag of ndagala, etc. In addition, she hopes to see her children grow up comfortably and to enlarge her business. This client is grateful to Hekima for its actions in favour of poor women excluded from the mainstream banking system. It should be noted that certain compatriots of the "Nyabushongo" market are included in the group photo to show their solidarity, and that one of the clients is carrying her baby in her arms.
