Makimbilio Group's story

Hekima client Mwavita is one of the officers of a business group called « Makimbilio». She is a senior entrepreneur with much experience, aged 51 and the mother of 10 children who all attend school. This client sells chickens. She displays her chickens at the public market and sometimes, at her home. She began her business with her own money, received from her husband more than 30 years ago.

Mwavita has already been able to manage several micro-projects for the benefit of her family with the profit from this business. This new loan will allow her to buy 20 chickens. In this way, she hopes to grow her little business by raising chickens in a modern way and construct a nice house for her children. She would like to thank Hekima sincerely for its support with microloans for small-scale business people who can't apply to a conventional bank.
