Ntahalia Group's story

The client Chiregano is the adviser for the business collective of Ntahalia. Chiregano is a dynamic young entrepreneur, 29 years old, and married with four children. Her husband is a taxi driver. Chiregano is a fruit seller. All the same, she also sells other food products (corn, yams, beans, etc.). Chiregano sells her merchandise in the market and sometimes from her home.

Chiregano started this business in her youth, with funds received from her grandfather. This new loan will be used to buy two baskets of plums, ten bunches of bananas, two baskets of oranges, avocados, etc.

Damage to the produce, rotting fruit, a lack of conservation technology, and insecurity in rural areas are major challenges for her business. Chiregano hopes to educate her children and help her business to grow. Chiregano would also like to give special thanks to Hekima for her micro loan support.
