Uaminifu Rénové Group's story

This client, Muhondi, is a valiant merchant and the vice-president of the business group "Uaminifu Rénové". A senior entrepreneur and energetic, she is 52 years old and a mother of five children, who are all students. She is a vendor of a variety of grocery items. She sets up her merchandise in a mini-store in her home located in a busy area, where she found out how to earn customers. She started her business with initial capital from harvesting produce. Her husband is a farmer. Later on, she benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for 25 years.

This new loan will be used to purchase 3 sacks of wheat flour, 2 boxes of milk, 2 sacks of sugar, 2 boxes of wine, 3 boxes of juice, 5 boxes of spring water, 60 liters of oil, etc. Thus, she would like to increase her capital and provide education and food for her children.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for promoting autonomy among small-scale entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system, especially during this difficult period post-conflict in the country's east.
