Utulivu Group's story

This client, Jeanne, is the group leader of the loan group "Utulivu". An experienced entrepreneur, she is 53 years old and the mother of two children, who already have their own respective homes. Her husband is a vendor of tires. This client sells beverages (Fanta, cola, Primus, Vive water, juices, curdled milk). She started her business about seventeen years ago with her own funds from her husband. This new loan will be used to purchase beverages (15 cases of Fanta and cola, 20 cases of Primus, 10 boxes of Vive Rwenzori water, 8 boxes of 'maltis' juices, 2 containers of curdled milk, etc.) Thus, she would like to grow her enterprise, purchase a second plot of land, and educate and feed her grandchildren.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for its micro-credit support for small-scale entrepreneurs. It should be noted that this photo was taken in a tight location tucked away in a shantytown for safety purposes against criminals while the loan funds are being disbursed.
