Uamsho Group's story

This client, Mawazo, is the vice-president of the business group Uamsho. She is divorced and the mother of five children. This client is a retailer of the local drink "madrakwa". She also sells groceries (tomatoes, peanuts, potatoes, beans, etc.) She started her micro-business with a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. Currently, she just completed 22 loan cycles in the Hekima microloan program.

This new loan must serve to supply her with 2 tubs of tomatoes, a tub of peanuts, and 50 kg of sorghum. The rest of the money is for educating her children.

Her ambition is to improve her enterprise. The major challenge for her is the persistent insecurity in supply zones. She therefore thanks Hekima for its support helping small-scale women entrepreneurs to be autonomous. It should be mentioned that one client is carry her baby.
