Aksante Mungu Group's story

Bidwaya has been a retailer for 10 years and is a member of the Aksante Mungu business group. She is a dynamic entrepreneur, 35 years old and the mother of 8 children, 6 of whom attend school and 2 of whom are still too young. She sells various items from a shop that she co-owns and which is located in a local market. She is requesting a loan from Hekima in order to increase her business which she started with funds she got from her husband. She and her husband share the financial burdens. She is going to buy items including 40 liters of oil, flour, matches, a box of soap, a bag of sugar, sweets, biscuits and iodized salt. In the coming years, she would like to increase her business, feed her children and make sure they get an education. She thanks Hekima for its support of women entrepreneurs excluded from the classic banking system.
