Upatanisho Group's story

The client Kavira is an entrepreneur, leader of the business group Upatanisho, approximately 48 years old, married, and mother to 9 children of whom some have their own homes and others still go to school. Her husband is unemployed. The client sells palm oil and the refined vegetable oil Rina. She displays her merchandise along her street and sometimes at her home. She has been practicing this business for 7 years.

She started her business with funds from a loan received from the Hekima MFI around 2004. This new loan will serve to stock up in new merchandise (6 cans of palm oil and 4 cartons of the refined vegetable oil Rina, 2 bags of flour, etc.) In addition, she aims to expand her business and fittingly build a beautiful house for her family. According to her, the loan from Hekima helped her to live in socially acceptable living conditions. The client salutes the initiative of the Hekima MFI for its actions dedicated to the poor women excluded from traditional banking.
