Mungu Ni Mwema Group's story

Solange, the featured borrower, is the representative of the credit group "Mungu ni mwema". She is a 28-year-old mother of six and a young and courageous entrepreneur. Her husband is involved in retail and sells various products.

Solange sells shoes. She started in this business with some money received from her husband. She will use this new loan to buy 50 pairs of used shoes. The financial crisis and a state of insecurity are two major challenges for the development of her activity.

In the future, she hopes to expand her business, send her children to school and build a house. She thanks Hekima for supporting female entrepreneurs through micro-credit.
