Neema Group's story

The client, Mashauri, is advisor of a borrower group, “Neema,” and a serious, experienced entrepreneur, who is 46 years old and mother of 8 children, all of whom attend school. The client is a shoe seller. Her spouse is unemployed. She sells her merchandise at the central market and sometimes from home. She started her business with her own money, which she got from her husband. Later, she benefitted from the financial support of the microcredit program Hekima. About 20 years ago, she started this business. This new loan will help her to buy 25 pairs of shoes. Thus, she hopes to grow her business and to educate, feed, and build for her children. She greatly thanks Hekima for its support via microcredit for non-bankable small businesses.
