Jipe Moyo Group's story

Kyakimwa, a client of MFI Hekima and Secretary of the business group called Jipe Moyo, is 37 years old and is a woman living alone (without a husband) and the mother of four young children who are all enrolled in school. She sells "Madrakwa" juice out of her home. She began her business with her own funds that she received from her boyfriend and her acquaintances.

Later on, she requested help from MFI Hekima. Thanks to loans, she has managed modest investments (buying a plot of land, chairs, cupboards, etc.) This new loan should allow her to buy three sacks of maize which she will use as an ingredient for producing "Madrakwa" juice. She thanks Hekima for their support and for helping small-scale female entrepreneurs to become independent.
