A loan of $3,400 helped a member buy three cases of beverages (one case of Primus beer, one case of Skol beer, and one case of Fanta).


Mulangane Group's story

The client, Bwira, is an advisor for the loan collective, Mulangani. She is 28 years old, and a young, dynamic, and experienced entrepreneur. She is the mother of six children who all go to school, and her spouse is a government worker.

The client sells beverages (beers and Fanta) out of her home. She started her business with her own funds that she received from her husband.

Subsequently, she received additional funds in the form of a loan from IMF Hekima. She has been working on her business for four years. This new loan will help her buy three cases of beverages (one case of Primus beer, one case of Skol beer, and one case of Fanta). She would like to pay for the schooling of her children and grow her business.

Selling on credit and exchange losses are challenges for developing her business. She strongly thanks Hekima for helping with the independence of women managers not served by the banking system -- especially in this critical moment of war with the east of the country.
