Chagali Group's story

The client, Kafeka, is the president of the loan group Chagali. A courageous woman entrepreneur, she is 38 years old and the mother of six children, who are all in school. Kafeka is a retailer of sundries in front of her home that include rice sugar, Fanta, soaps, salt, spices, etc. Her husband works at a transportation agency.

Kafeka started her business with a Hekima loan when she was informed by her friends of this microcredit program. The profits from her business go toward savings, food, and schooling for her children. However, she just completed seven loan cycles. Over that time, this client saw her business shrink following the crisis and the security problems in the region. Thanks to Hekima loans, she got important home supplies and equipment for her family.

So her new loan must serve to supply her with 2 sacks of garlic, 2 containers of Rina oil, and a variety of other goods. In addition, she would like to see her children grow up smoothly.

This client thanks Hekima and its partners for their actions in supporting poor women with low incomes to become autonomous.
