A loan of $4,950 helped a member to pay for 2 sacks of peanuts.


Anonymous Group's story

This client is the treasurer of the loan group Ujamaa. A courageous woman, an entrepreneur, and a widow, she is 42 years old and the mother of ten children. She is a retailer of peanuts. She started her business with her own funds received from her husband having sold their car. This client regularly benefits from Hekima loans for bolstering her business. The profits from her business go toward savings, food, and supporting her children's education. However, she just obtained her eighteenth loan. During this time, this client saw her sales go up. Thus she decided to increase her loan amount for this new cycle. This new loan must serve to buy 2 sacks of peanuts. Her difficulties are often an inventory shortage and price fluctuations. She wishes to see her children grown up, and she would like to build a fence in the future. This client thanks Hekima for its actions helping poor, low-income women to become autonomous. It's appropriate to indicate that certain clients are holding their babies.
