A loan of $4,700 helped a member to purchase charcoal.

Tosheka Group's story

This client, Kahindo, is the treasurer and most senior member of the business group Tosheka. She is an experienced entrepreneur, 60 years old, a widow, and the mother of nine children, of whom three are students, and the others have their own households. This client sells charcoal at the Katindo market. She started this business using her own funds gotten from a family member. Later on, she benefited from an additional Hekima loan.

This new loan will serve to purchase 15 sacks of charcoal for her. Red tape annoyingly amounts to a challenge for her business. She would like to increase her capital and educate her children.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for supporting small-scale entrepreneurs with micro-loans.
