A loan of $1,825 helped a member to buy 15 bags of corn.

Mufari Group's story

Nsimire is treasurer for the Mufari group, a courageous entrepreneur, and mother of seven children, all of whom go to school. Her spouse is a teacher at a public school.

Nsimire sells foodstuffs. She stocks up in the countryside. She started this business with her own funds that she received from her husband. This new loan will enable her to buy 15 bags of corn.

Nsimire pays too much in taxes, when she travels, to armed groups operating in the regions where she goes. She would therefore like to thank Hekima for assisting small, non-bankable entrepreneurs by providing them micro loans. It should be noted that another client is holding her baby.

In this group: Kahindo*, Bahati, Nyafura, Bwingo, Miringa, Adija, Odila, Shindani, Buhoro, Buhoro, Bwira, Rajabu, Furaha, Nyakwazi, Nsimire, Tumusifi
