A loan of $6,375 helped a member to buy 15 pairs of shoes.

Asifiwe Group's story

Cinyabugu, the customer, is an advisor to the "Asifiwe" business group. A young and experienced entrepreneur, she is 36 years old and the mother of 7 children who all attend school. Her spouse is a civil servant.

Cinyabugu sells shoes. She offers her products to customers at the market and, occasionally, at home. She started her business about 3 years ago with a loan she received from the MFI Hekima. This new loan will be used to buy 15 pairs of shoes. She would like to increase her business and to feed her children and ensure they get an education. Her lack of sufficient capital is a challenge to the development of her business. Finally, she would like to strongly thank Hekima for its support of small entrepreneurs in the form of microloans.

Note: one of the customers in the photo is carrying her baby.
