A loan of $4,825 helped a member to buy three goats.


Atuwezeshe Group's story

Shamwindo is a member of the Atuwezeshe business group. A young, experienced entrepreneur, she is 28 years old, married, and has five children, who are all at school. Her husband is a student at the university.

Shamwindo sells meat from a small butcher shop. She started her business around a year ago, using her own money received from her husband. This new loan will help her buy three goats.

In this way, she would like to expand her business, support her husband’s education and build a house for her family.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima for providing support to small-scale entrepreneurs through microcredit. It should be noted that some customers are pictured holding their children.
