Juhudi Group's story

Nyaminya, age 53, is the president of Juhudi Group. She's an energetic senior entrepreneur with lots of experience. She's the mother of ten children who all go to school. Two of them live in their own household.

Nyaminya sells potatoes. She sets up her products at her home. He husband is unemployed, however he occasionally makes some commissions on land lots sales and lease agreements.

Nyaminya started her business with her husband's help. Later on, she benefited from a loan from Kiva's partner, Hekima. She's been running her business for ten years.

This new loan will be used to buy four sacks of potatoes. With it, she hopes to expand her business and send her children to school.

In the end, she strongly thanks Hekima for its contribution to make women who are excluded by traditional banks self-supporting, especially during this critical time of war in the East of the country.
