Amina's Group's story

This client, Kangela, is a good and honest merchant with seven years of experience. She is a member of the business association "Uhaki" and is the mother of five children, all students. She sells a variety of shop goods. She is requesting a loan from Hekima to grow her enterprise. She is going to purchase a bag of sugar, a bag of wheat flour, 2 boxes of soaps, 2 bags of iodized salt, and 3 boxes of canned tomatoes. At first, she had received funds from her former husband. Her husband is a nurse at a local hospital. She would like to increase her capital, become a wholesale merchant, educate her children, and ensure their well-being further.

She thanks Hekima for its support of women entrepreneurs who are excluded from the traditional banking system by giving them no-collateral micro-loans, especially during this time of conflict in the country's east.
