Mkono Mkononi Group's story

This client, Ndalemwa, is the president of a business association called "Mkono Mkononi". An experienced entrepreneur, she is 45 years old and the mother of twelve children, of whom five are students. Her husband is a master builder-mason. This client sells a variety of goods. She owns a small kiosk (store) set up in her home. She started her business with her own funds from her husband about fourteen years ago. This new loan will be used to purchase various goods (boxes of soap, boxes of candy, cookies, 10 flashlights, batteries, lotion, matches, Omo detergents, etc.) Thus, she would like to grow her enterprise and to provide schooling and food for her children, as well as to buy a house. In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for its micro-credit support for small-scale entrepreneurs.
