Dunda Mu Yesu Group's story

This client, M'twali, is a member of the business association "Dunda mu yesu". She is a young entrepreneur, experienced, energetic, 35 years old, divorced, and a mother of five children, who are all students. M'twali is a vendor of shoes. She sets up her merchandise at the public market and sometimes as home. She started her business with assistance from her husband before they separated. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for twelve years.

This new loan will be used to purchase 40 pairs of shoes. Thus, she would like to expand her business plans and purchase a plot of land for her children.

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.
