A loan of $4,425 helped a member to buy wheat flour, yeast, sugar, etc.


Tusaidiane Group's story

The client Kahambu is the head of the Tusaidiane loan group where the members are 53 years old on average. She is married and is the mother of 12 children and several grandchildren. Her husband is a pastor at a Baptist church. The client sells fritters and cakes out of her home.

She started her company with revolving credit from a local development bank. She's been running her small business for close to 5 years. She just completed 23 cycles with Hekima's microloan program. It’s thanks to this loan, she says, that her children can comfortably study in the local universities.

Her small amount of capital is a big challenge for her as an entrepreneur. This new loan will help her buy wheat flour, yeast, sugar, etc. The rest of the money will be used to pay for her children's schooling. She would like to grow her business.

She thanks Hekima for their support and for the empowerment of female entrepreneurs.
