Riziki Mupya Group's story

This client, Ruvuga, is an advisor of the loan collective "Riziki Mupya". She is a young entrepreneur, experienced, energetic, 23 years old, and a mother of four children, who are all students. Her husband is a taxi driver. Ruvuga is a shoe vendor. She sets up her merchandise to sell at a busy spot in her district (along the street). She started her business with family assistance. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for seven years.

This new loan is going to be used to purchase 20 pairs of shoes. Thus, she would like to provide schooling to her children and to expand her business plans. Challenges for developing her business include exchange losses.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for promoting autonomy among unbanked women entrepreneurs, especially during this critical time of war in the country's east.
