La Joie Group's story

Vumilia is the leader of the "La Joie" business group; she is married and the mother of six children. Her husband is unemployed. She is a seller of foodstuffs at the market in Nyabushongo. She started her business with a loan from Hekima. She has recently completed her 13th cycle in the microcredit program at Hekima.
This new loan will allow her to purchase two sacks of beans. She states that her family are dependent on this business. Thanks to the loans from which she has benefited, she is easily able to cover the costs of schooling, food, etc.
