Maisha Group's story

This client, Kakule, advisor of the business group «Maisha», is an energetic entrepreneur who is married and the mother of three young children, who are students in primary school. Her husband is a teacher. She is an associate in a pharmacy. She is settled in a commercial dispensary.

For about thirteen years, she has been working in these small-scale revenue-generating businesses. Yet she just completed ten loan cycles with the microfinance institution Hekma. She started with meager capital, from her husband, and then on her own in the end because her husband worked in an international organization.

This new loan must serve to provide her with 5 boxes of essential and generic medicines to sell (paracetamols, quinine, aspirin, anti-inflamatories, anti-malarials, multi-vitamins, anti-biotics. etc.)

In addition, she would like to see her children grow up comfortably and to expand her enterprise. The profits from her enterprise will be used to pay for her children's education, food, and clothing.

This client thanks Hekima for its actions helping poor women excluded from traditional banks to become autonomous.
