Mwamba Group's story

This client, Mastaki, is the treasurer of the loan group "Mwamba". A courageous entrepreneur, she is 42 years old and a mother of nine children, who are all students. Her husband is a teacher in a primary school. This client sells a variety of goods (clothing). She started this business with funds from her husband.

This new loan is going to be used to purchase clothing (dresses, pants, skirts, etc.) The main obstacles in developing her business are war and insecurity in the city. For the future, she would like to expand her enterprise and to provide clothing, food, and schooling for her children. So, she thanks Hekima for its micro-credit support of women entrepreneurs.
