Mapatano Group's story

Musoka, the leader of the group loan Mapatano, is a 40 year old entpreneur. She is married and the mother of 6 children, all of whom attend school. Her husband is an evangelical pastor in a local church. She is the owner of a sewing studio in the Ndsoho neighborhood, which she opened 8 years ago. Since then, she has asked for and obtained 10 microfinance loans from Hekima. She opened the business using proper cash from her husband. She is asking for a new loan in order to purchase sewing materials (15 meters of cloth, threads, lace, thimbles, scissors, etc). She would also like to see her children take over and grow her business in the future. Musoka greatly appreciates Hekima for enabling poor, unbanked women to being independent.
