A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy 150 fish.


Buzigire Group's story

Torwa is the vice-secretary of the business group Buzigire. A young entrepreneur, Torwa is 28 years old, married, and a mother of six children, who all go to school. Her husband is a sawyer.

Torwa has been selling fish for a living for about six years. She lays out her goods along the road. She started this business with funds from her uncle. Later, she benefited from a loan with the MFI Hekima. This new loan will allow her to buy 150 fish to sell. Insecurity and the financial crisis are major challenges to her business. She hopes to increase her capital and educate her children.

Finally, she wants to strongly thank Hekima for their support in micro-lending.
