Tunashukuru Group's story

The client Simweray is an adviser to the business group "Tunashukuru." She is a brave young entrepreneur, 31 years old, married and mother to 4 children who all study. Her spouse is a mechanic. The client is a seller of potatoes and sweet drinks (Fanta, Coca Cola). She sets up her products at the public market and sometimes at her home. She started her business with a loan from the MFI Hekima, about 7 years ago. Losses due to rotting potatoes and broken bottles are great challenges for her businesses. This new loan will be used to buy 5 bags of potatoes and 10 cases of Fanta. Thus, she hopes to grow her capital, school her children and build with durable materials. Finally, she hardily thanks Hekima for its microloan support of small entrepreneurs.
