A loan of $5,750 helped a member to buy three bales of used shoes.

Riziki Group's story

The borrower, Matabishi, is the leader of the "Riziki" business group. Aged 35, she is a young, yet experienced entrepreneur. She is also divorced and the mother of two children who both go to school.

Matabishi sells used shoes. She displays her merchandise at the public market and sometimes at home. She started in this business about 11 years ago, using her own money, received from her ex-husband.

This new loan will be used to buy three bales of shoes. Her goals are to expand her business, feed and educate her children and buy a plot of land.

In the end, she would like to thank Hekima for the support it provides to small-scale entrepreneurs, through microcredit.

In this group: Rosalie, Matabishi, Bagirisha, Andre, Busanga, M'kajeje, Ndabugi, Nzonga, Riziki, M'nyampaka, Marie, Mwasimoke, Matabaro, Rachel, Collette, N'neza, Ruhumbika, Muderwa, Ruvuga, Giselle, Adasha, Barhankabaga, Muliri, Karoro, Florida, Nyange, Kabibi, Butaragaza, Kanane
