A loan of $3,050 helped a member to buy a bale of second-hand clothing.


Plamedi Group's story

Mudekereza is a merchant with 7 years experience. She is 35 years old, a responsible widow and the mother of 3 children who all attend school. Mudekereza is a member of the "Plamedi" business group and sells second-hand clothing. She displays her merchandise along a busy road in town. She is requesting a loan from Hekima in order to increase her business. She will buy one bale of second-hand clothing.

Mudekereza started her business with funds she received from her husband (when he was alive). In the coming years, she would like to increase her credit, buy a plot of land, feed her children and ensure that they get an education. She thanks Hekima for its support of non-bancable female entrepreneurs in the form of microloans, especially during this time of war in the East of the country.
