Heri Ya Mungu Group's story

This client, by the name of Mikele, is the leader of the “Heri ya Mungu” business group. She is an ambitious entrepreneur, 34 years old, married, and the mother of six young children, all of whom are in school. Her husband is a civil servant. She is a shareholder in a pharmacy. She launched her business with her own funds (from salary) after she resigned from the private clinic where she used to work as a nurse. She has been working in this business for four years. She just obtained her fourth loan from Hekima. This new loan will allow her to stock up on boxes of essential generic medications (paracetamol [acetaminophen], antibiotics, aspirin, antimalarial drugs, antidiarrheal drugs, balms, glucose etc.). She would like to see her children grow up in comfortable conditions and to open her own office. This client thanks Hekima for its actions in support of low-income women excluded from traditional banking. It should be noted that some clients in the photo are carrying their infants.
