A loan of $4,250 helped a member to buy two sacks of beans.


Dunda Mu Yesu Group's story

The customer, Mapendo, who is vice-president of the Dunda mu Yesu loan group, is a dynamic entrepreneur, who is 30 years old. She sells beans and also does dressmaking. Her husband is a teacher in a primary school. She has been trading for two years. More recently she was informed about the micro-loans granted by IMF Hékima. She was consequently granted a first loan of $50 to boost her business. The profits from her business are used for savings, as well as for her children's food and schooling. Meanwhile, she has just been granted her seventh loan. During this period, this customer has seen her business prosper. She has thus decided to increase her loan for this new cycle and will use it to buy two sacks of beans. In the future she would like to see her children grow up and buy a piece of land. The customer is grateful to Hekima for its actions to make poor women with low income more autonomous.
