A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy 2 bags of sorghum.

Mizeituni Group's story

Mamisa, the leader of the "Mizeituni" group, is a dynamic entrepreneur. She is 39 years old and the mother of 6 young children who are all studying. She sells sorghum. Her husband is a veterinary nurse. Mamisa displays her merchandise at the communal market of Nyabushongo. She started her business selling semolina with her own funds, received from her husband. Later on, she benefited from additional funds in the form of a $50 loan from MFI Hekima. She has been in this line of work for 4 years. She has just completed 8 loan cycles with the MFI Hekima microfunding program. The insecurity in the province's interior is threatening the development of her business. This new loan should allow her to buy 2 bags of sorghum and the rest of the money will be spent on her children's education. She would also like to see her children grow up and buy a house.

The customer thanks Hekima for its actions helping impoverished women achieve economic and financial emancipation.
