Pelagie's Group's story

Mwasangapi, the leader of the business group "Dynamique", is an experienced entrepreneur and doyenne. She is 46 years old, widowed and the mother of 4 children, some of whom are going to school and others who already have their own families. Her husband died suddenly. Mwasangapi is a shoe seller. She displays her items along the side of the road and sometimes at her home. She started her business with funds she received from her children around 5 years ago. This new loan will allow her to buy 2 bags of shoes. A challenge to her business comes from robbers and other highway bandits. She would like to increase her business, feed her children and ensure that they get an education. Finally, she would like to strongly thank Hekima for the support it provides in the form of microloans to small entrepreneurs.
