A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy 15 sacks of cassava flour.

Miujiza Group's story

The customer, Christina, is the vice-president of the Miujiza business group. She is the eldest in the group and an experienced entrepreneur, who is 59 years old, a widow and mother to six children, some of whom are studying and others who have their own families. Her husband died unexpectedly. The customer sells cassava flour and is the owner of a cassava flour warehouse.She began her business with her own capital which she was given by her children around five years ago.This new loan will be used to buy 15 sacks of cassava flower. She would thereby like to expand her company and buy a plot of land for her young children. The multitude of taxes are a real challenge for her company. Finally, she is extremely grateful to Hekima for its support in the form of micro-loans for small entrepreneurs.
