A loan of $5,175 helped a member to buy 9 sacks of charcoal.

Tosheka Group's story

This client, Kahindo, is an entrepreneur and the treasurer of the group Tosheka. She is 52 years old, a widow, and the mother of nine children. Her husband is deceased following a sudden illness. This client is a retailer of charcoal. Around the year 2000, she started her business using funds from a close friend as a form of assistance.

Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima to bolster her business. She sets up her goods at the market. This new loan must serve her to stock up on 9 sacks of charcoal to increase her inventory. In addition, her ambition is to buy a plot of land and to build a house with ease for her children.

This client thanks Hekima for its actions in favor of poor people excluded from traditional banking.
