A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy half a bale of second-hand clothes.


Mwito Group's story

Munyerenkana, an entrepreneur, is vice-president of the Mwito business group. She is 37 years old, married and the mother of nine children. Munyerenkana's husband is a small-scale general trader and Munyerenkana sells second-hand clothes. She began this business with her own money that she received from her husband. Later, she accessed additional funds in the form of loans from IMF Hekima. Munyerenkana has been running this business for around six years now. She will use this new loan to buy half a bale of second-hand clothes to sell. Insecurity and the financial crisis are the major challenges facing her business. She wishes to increase her capital and send her children to school. She would like to thank Hekima for its support through microcredit.
