Boresha Maisha Group's story

Our customer Muvingi is an entrepreneur with five years of business experience. She is 35 years old and the mother of four children, all of whom attend school. This client is the member of the Boresha Maisha business group. She sells used clothing (bed linens, towels etc). She sets up her merchandise at the central market of her town. She is seeking a loan from Hekima to grow her business. She will buy five bales of used clothing. She has launched her business with the starting funds received from her husband. Her husband works in public administration (as a tax collection agent). In the future, she would like to take out a larger loan, buy a land plot, and provide for the education and food of her children. She thanks Hekima for its support of male and female entrepreneurs who have no access to traditional banking through microloans, at this time following armed conflicts in the eastern part of the country.

In this group: Simisi, Muhingi, Kitemuliki, Muvingi, Kyataka
