Isaac Group's story

Salumu, age 46, has been a reseller for 20 years. She is a member and the president of the business group “Isaac”. She is an experienced entrepreneur, and the widowed mother of 3 children who all go to school.

Salumu sells clothing. She runs her business from a shop at a local shopping center. She is seeking a loan from Hekima to bolster her activity. She plans to buy pants, dresses, children’s clothing, etc. She started her business with member dividends.

Her goals are to bolster her working capital, and to ensure that her children are fed and educated.

She wishes to thank the Hekima MFI for wisely choosing to offer financial assistance to male and female entrepreneurs who cannot use the traditional banking system and without asking for collateral, especially in these difficult times following the war in the Eastern region.
