Anonymous Group's story

The client, the leader of the Mapatano group, is a dynamic entrepreneur, 40 years old and mother of 8 children, who are all in school. She sells fabric (Bitenge). Her husband is also a retailer of diverse items. She sells her items from the community market in Katindo. She started the business with her own money, then later received additional funding from the microfinance institution Hekima. For the past four years, she has carried out these small revenue generating activities. She already completed eight loan cycles with Hekima's microcredit program. With this new loan, she will stock up by buying 10 double reams of fabric (Bitenge) and make other small investments in her business. She wishes to see her children grow up and to build a decent house. She thanks Hekima for its commitment to poor women and their economic and financial empowerment.
