A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy two sacks of sorghum.

Mizeituni Group's story

The borrower, Mamisa, is the leader of the credit group "Mizeituni". She is a dynamic 39-year-old entrepreneur, mother of 6 young children who all attend school.

Mamisa sells sorghum. Her husband works as a veterinary nurse. Mamisa sets her goods at the local market in Nyabushongo. She started her business selling semolina and using her own capital, which she received from her husband. Later on, she received a 50 USD loan from the MFI Hekima as additional funding. Mamisa has been involved in this type of small income-generating activity for more than four years.

Mamisa has completed 8 loan cycles using the microcredit program offered through the MFI Hekima. Insecurity inside her province constitutes a threat for the development of her activities.

This new loan will help her to buy 2 sacks of sorghum, and with the remainder of the money, she will pay her children's school fees.

Mamisa would like to see her children grow, and she would also like to buy a house. She thanks Hekima for helping low-income women become financially and economically independent. It should be noted that, [in the photo] ,some borrowers are carrying their babies.
