A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy 100 litres of milk for resale.

Makimbilio Ii Group's story

Dombo is a trader with fifteen years' experience. She is forty-two years old, widowed and has four children. All her children attend school. She is a member of the business group 'Makimblio II'.

Dombo sells fresh milk on a busy street in her town. She started her business at a young age, using money provided by her parents.

She has requested this loan from the field partner, Hekima, in order to expand her business, and will use the loan to buy 100 litres of milk.

In the future, Dombo would like to increase her loans, and feed and educate her children.

She is grateful to Hekima for the micro loans they provide to non-bankable, women entrepreneurs. This is particularly important during the post-conflict period in the east of the country.
