Go/03173 Group's story

Namwezi is a member of the "Esther" business group. An experienced entrepreneur, she is 45 years old, married and the mother of 10 children who are all in education. Her husband has a teaching role in a public school, and she is a fish seller. She displays her products at the market and sometimes also at her home. She started her business with her own capital received from her husband, eleven years ago. She will use this new loan to buy four bags of dried fish. Thus, she wants to grow her business, educate and feed her children, and build a fine house.
Finally, she thanks Hekima for its support for small entrepreneurs.
