Unyenyekevu Group's story

Kavira, the customer and leader of the business group Unyenyekevu, is a 55-year-old entrepreneur. She is a widow and the mother of 10 young children, who are all studying. Her husband recently died after a sudden illness.

Kavira has been selling second-hand handbags for 5 years. She has just received her 13th loan from Hekima, which should allow her to buy a bale of handbags and other items. She would like to watch her children grow up, to increase her business and to buy a second plot of land which she will bequeath to her children.

The customer thanks Hekima for its actions in aid of poor women excluded from regular banks.
