Tenez Bon Group's story

Our customer Mishonya is a retailer with fourteen years of experience. At age 52, she is a window in charge of nine children: seven of them are students, and two are already married.

This customer is the presiding member of the business collective “Tenez bon”. She retails second-hand clothing. She shows her merchandise at the central market of the city. She is requesting a loan from Hekima to grow her business. She will purchase ten bundles of second-hand clothes. She started her business with capital given by her husband, when he was still alive.

In the future, she would like to increase her savings, build a house, and feed and send to school her orphaned children. She thanks Hekima for its support to women entrepreneurs without banking access, granting them microloans in this period after the war in the Eastern region of the country.

In this group: Mishonya, Fitina, Mufabule, Masango
