Usikilivu B Group's story

This client, Shalwewabo, has been a good and honest merchant for fifteen years and is a member of the business group "Usikilivu B". She is 34 years old, unmarried, and a mother of one child, who is still very young. Shalwewabo is a vendor of plastic footwear and an associate in a store in the town's commercial center.

She is requesting a loan from Hekima to increase her business. She is going to purchase 3,000 pairs of plastic footwear. She started off her business with funds from her friend. For the future, she would like to purchase a parcel of land and build on it and to provide food and clothing for her child.

She thanks Hekima for having chosen her goal by supporting men and women entrepreneurs while granting them loans without the need for collateral, especially during this precarious time.
