Anonymous Group's story

This client is chair of the Hodar borrowers’ group. This courageous 40-year old woman is an entrepreneur. She is married and the mother of ten children, six of whom study. Her husband is unemployed. She sells used clothing along the street that runs through the shantytown of Birere. She launched her business six years ago with the loan from IMF Hekima. She says that her revenues are put away as savings and are also used to pay for food, clothing and education of her children. This new loan will allow her to buy one bale of used clothing. In addition, her goal is to buy a motorcycle to use as a taxi and a land plot, where she could build a house to live in. The client thanks Hekima and its partners for its work to foster self-sufficiency and independence of low-income women.
