Mkono Mkononi Group's story

Furaha is the president of the lending group Mkono Mkononi, a courageous entrepreneur, and the mother of 12 children, 7 of whom attend school. Her husband is a mason builder. She has been selling local drinks for the past 15 years, a business that she began with financing from her husband. She is asking for a new loan in order to purchase the necessary goods needed to create the drinks (manioc flour, corn, wood for fueld, sorghum, etc). She sometimes has difficulty selling her drinks due to a poorly developed product. She hopes to purchase a plot of land and ensure all of her children are educated. She is very thankful to Hekima's support in helping her achieve these goals.
