Tuungane/kavumu Group's story

Mukuzo is president of the Tuungane credit group. She is a 35-year-old widow and mother of six children, four of whom are in school. Thanks to her father's savings, she has been selling staple products since she was a child. Currently on her seventh loan cycle with Hekima, she is requesting this loan in order to buy 170 kg of beans. She worries about insecurity in the area, but thinks that with Hekima's loan she will be able to go forward and rent her own bean warehouse.
