Anonymous Group's story

The client is a member of Justice Group. She's an energetic woman, an experienced entrepreneur, and very ambitious. She's 40 years old and the mother of seven children, out of whom two are twins.

She runs a shop in downtown Goma. Her husband is a banker with a banking and real-estate company. She started her business after getting married, by selling small items to her peers.

She's been running her business for 13 years. On a regular basis, she gets a loan from Kiva's partner, Hekima, in order to bolster her business. Her profits are used for savings, for food, and to help cover her children's school expenses.

She just received her sixth loan. During the last loan cycle, her business thrived significantly. Consequently, she decided to seek a bigger loan for this new cycle. She will use her new loan to buy 50 dozen layettes in Kampala.

In addition, she would like to see her children grow and surprise her husband by offering him a car. She thanks Hekima for its actions aimed at making low-income women self-sustaining.
