A loan of $5,075 helped a member buy six bags of cassava flour.


Mufariji Group's story

The client, Kakule, is a shopkeeper and a member of the "Mufariji" business group.

This dynamic entrepreneur is 38 years old and is the mother of six children. Five of her children go to school, but one is too young.

The client sells corn flour. She sells her goods in front of her home where she knows how to find her clients.

She initially started her business with her husband's capital. Her spouse is a teacher in a local school. Later on, she received a loan from l’IMF Hekima. She has been running her business for eight years. She will use this new loan to buy six bags of cassava flour. She would like to buy a house and to educate and feed her children.

She strongly thanks Hekima for the empowerment of female entrepreneurs not served by the banking system - especially during this critical time of war in the east of the country.
