Anonymous Group's story

The client, a member of the business group, is a 36-year-old businesswoman. She is married and the mother of five children, all of whom are in school. Her husband is unemployed. She sells bananas, shikwange (ground manioc cooked in a banana leaf), peanuts, etc. downtown. She has been running similar small business since the 90s, and just obtained her 16th loan through Hekima. This new loan will allow her to buy two baskets of peanuts, five bunches of bananas, beans, flour, etc. She is currently experiencing difficulty in her business after diseases ravaged banana trees and other plants in the region. She wants to see her children grow up comfortably, and she would like to buy a piece of land in the future. She thanks Hekima for helping poor women who are excluded from traditional banks.
