A loan of $3,025 helped a member to buy 3 sacks of charcoal and a sack of cassava flour.


Alpha Group's story

This client, Nyota, is a member of the loan group Alpha. She is an energetic woman, an entrepreneur, and about 30 years old, and she sells charcoal and cassava flour. Her husband is an evangelist-intercessor at a local evangelical church.

She started her small business with her own funds. Later on, she joined the Hekima micro-loan program to bolster her business. She just completed five loan cycles with Hekima. The profits from her business go toward a savings account, food, and covering her children's schooling costs. Over this time, this client saw her business really prosper. So she decided to increase the loan amount for this new cycle.

This new loan will serve to supply her with 3 sacks of charcoal and a sack of cassava flour. In addition, she would like to see her children grow up and to buy a plot of land in the future.

This client thanks Hekima for its actions helping poor women having low incomes to become autonomous.
