A loan of $3,550 helped a member buy five lengths of pagne (colorful West-African fabric).

Miujiza Group's story

Yango is a merchant and a member of the "Muijiza" business association. She is a dynamic junior entrepreneur, 23 years old and newly married.

The member sell clothes (pagnes). She displays her goods at home on the avenue in a busy area. She started her business with funds received from her husband. Her husband, too, is a businessman.

Later she was granted a loan from the Hekima MFI. She has only been in business for the past eight months. This new loan will serve to buy five lengths of pagnes. In the future, she wants to buy a plot of land, educate, clothe and feed her children.

In summary, she greatly thanks Hekima for the empowerment of non-bankable women entrepreneurs, especially during this critical time of war in the east of the country.
