A loan of $8,975 helped a member to purchase sorghum.

Malaika Group's story

This client, Ndababo, is a merchant and a member of the business group “Malaika”. She is an energetic entrepreneur, 43 years old, and the mother of thirteen children, of whom 11 are students, and two others are still very young. This client sells sorghum. She sets up her merchandise at her home in front of her fence, where she figured out how to earn her customers. She started her business with initial capital from her husband. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for ten years.

This new loan is going to be used to purchase 6 sacks of sorghum. Thus, she would like to purchase a parcel of land and build upon it and to provide education and food for her children.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for promoting autonomy for women entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system, especially during this difficult time post-conflict in the eastern part of the country.
