A loan of $2,250 helped a member purchase a bag of used clothing.


Mwito Group's story

Vumilia has been a storekeeper for the last 10 years and the member of a business association called Mwito. She is 40 years old and the mother of six children, all of whom attend school. She sells used clothing. She is asking for a loan from Hekima in order to purchase a large amount of used clothing in order to grow her business. Her partner is a farmer. She began this business with money received from her biological family. In the future, she hopes to educate and feed her children. She is thus thankful to Hekima for the support provided to small entrepreneurs that are excluded from the classic banking system.
