A loan of $6,000 helped a member to purchase 15 sacks of cassava.

Safina Group's story

This client, Maneno, is the advisor of the business group Safina. She is a brave entrepreneur, 42 years old, and the mother of seven children, who are all students. Her husband is a butcher and sells goats. This client sells foodstuffs. She sets up her goods in a warehouse. She started this business around 1994 with her own funds received from her husband.

This new loan will serve to purchase 15 sacks of cassava for her. The losses associated with spoiled goods constitute a stumbling block to developing her enterprise. She would like to see her children finish their studies. So, she thanks Hekima very much for supporting her with micro-loans.
