A loan of $5,100 helped a member to cover the cost of education and to bolster her plans for a shop.


Ep Rutoboko Group's story

This client, Bwira, has been a teacher at a Rutoboko primary school since 2005. She is 27 years old and very ambitious. She is still unmarried. Aside from being a teacher, she is also a student at a local university in the department of community development. In addition, she is a supplier of grocery items (rice, flour, soaps, etc.) for her teacher peers, who pay on credit. Bwira had undertaken this initiative at the time because of the need for a school shop in several schools in the city. This Hekima loan must serve to cover education costs and to bolster her plans for a shop.

Thus, she says thank-you to Hekima and its partners for supporting unbanked teachers who lack collateral. It is appropriate to indicate to the reader that this profile belongs to the girl wearing red and not to the school's director, whose enthusiastically raised his hand in the photo.
