Ujamaa Group's story

This client, by the name of Marie, is the leader of the Ujamaa business group. She is an experienced young entrepreneur, 34 years old, married and the mother of seven children, all of whom are in school. Her husband sells fuel (gas). Marie sells fish. She sets up her produce at the market and sometimes by her home. She has launched her business with her own starting capital received from her husband about six years ago. This new loan will allow her to buy four baskets of fish. She would like to expand her business, provide for the education and food for her children and purchase a second land plot. Finally, she expresses her heartfelt thanks to Hekima for its microloans supporting small business owners.
