A loan of $6,325 helped a member to buy 20 handbags.

Sheria Group's story

Kabatsi is the oldest member of the Sheria business group. She is an experienced entrepreneur, 60 years old, a widow, and a mother of seven children, of whom one goes to school. The other children already have their own households.

Kabatsi sells handbags. She displays her goods in a market, and sometimes in her home. She started this business about ten years ago with funds from one of her children.

This new loan will serve to buy 20 handbags.

Kabatsi wishes to increase her business and to educate and feed her child that is still under her care.

Finally, Kabatsi strongly thanks Hekima for their lending support to small-scale entrepreneurs.
