Mutiifu Group's story

Kabuo is a young single woman aged 36, and the treasurer of the business group Tumusifu. She is an entrepreneur and the mother of four children who attend school. She is the owner of a small restaurant in a local suburb. She began her business in 2009 with the help of a loan from Hekima. Kabuo has just completed 16 cycles in the micro loan program. Her current loan will be used to buy two sacks of beans, 30 kg of potatoes, 25 liters of oil, salt, and one sack of coal, among other supplies. It is Kabuo's dream to someday be able to purchase a plot of land for her children. Kabuo has said that she was previously able to live with a family member, but that she now pays for rent expenses. She is thankful to Hekima for the support it provides to women entrepreneurs who would otherwise not be able to start their own small businesses.
