A loan of $4,025 helped a member to buy 70 kg. of coffee, 8 cans of curdled milk, etc.

Tuungane Group's story

The borrower, Mushonga, is the representative of the Tuungane business group. She is 51 years old and an experienced entrepreneur. She is also a widow and the mother of seven children, two of whom are not in school, because of the many household expenses.

Mushonga sells coffee and curdled milk. Additionally, she sells plastic items. She displays her goods, usually in her shop, but sometimes also at the market or at home. As she was an orphan, she started in this business at a very young age, using her own funds, built up from the income she received from small jobs.

This new loan will be used to buy 70 kg. of coffee, 8 cans of curdled milk etc. Extremely high taxes are a major challenge for her commercial activity.

Mushonga would like to increase her capital and educate her children. In the end, she thanks Hekima very much for providing support to small entrepreneurs through Microcredit.
