A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy five baskets of fish.


Anonymous Group's story

The client is a member of the Kavira group. She is a dynamic 40 year-old entrepreneur and the mother of seven children. Two of her children no longer attend school for lack of financial means.

She sells fish. Her husband is involved in small retail business. She started her business with a loan of 50 USD from the micro-finance institution Hekima. The profits from her activity help her to put some money into savings, to feed her children and pay for their school fees.

She has now received her sixth loan. During that time period, she has seen her business thrive. This is why she has decided to request a larger loan amount for this new cycle. With this new loan, she will be able to purchase five baskets of fish. She would also like to see her children grow, and to buy a house.

She thanks Hekima for its action in favor of the empowerment of poor women excluded from the traditional banking system.
