Habari Njema Group's story

The borrower Nyambura is the treasurer of the loan group Nabari Njema. She is an entrepreneur, married, and the mother of eight children. Her husband is a vendor of various products. The borrower sells grocery products. She started with her own money. She has completed eight loan cycles with the Hekima program. This new loan will allow her to buy 25 liters of palm oil, 50 liters of Rina vegetable oil, 50 kg of flour, etc. The lower exchange rate due to the variation in tax rates and insecurity constitute the main challenges for her business. The borrower very much wants for her children to be educated. Therefore, she thanks Hekima for its support of small business owners.
