A loan of $6,400 helped a member to buy eight sacks of manioc.


Matumaini Group's story

Faida is an assistant leader of the business group called « Matumaini». She is a young but experienced entrepreneur aged 38 and the mother of seven children who are all enrolled in school. She sells manioc and displays her merchandise at the public market. She began her business with a loan from MFI Hekima more than nine years ago.

She has already been able to achieve a lot for her family using the profit from this business. This new loan will serve her to grow her income by buying eight sacks of manioc. In this way, she hopes to be able to pay her children's school fees and build a nice little house. The insecurity (due to the rebels and other predatory men) in the villages where she sources her goods is a challenge for the development of her activity. Finally, she thanks Hekima sincerely for its support with micro-loans to small entrepreneurs who have no access to banking services, during this critical wartime period.
