A loan of $2,150 helped a member to buy 4 drums of palm oil for resale.

Chubaka Group's story

Mapendo is the leader of the Chubaka loan group. She is 39 years old, married and has five children. Three of her children attend school and the other two are under five years old.

Mapendo has been selling palm oil at the village market since 2004. This new loan will enable her to buy four drums of palm oil for resale to improve her trading figures. The biggest challenges in her business are theft and poor storage of merchandise. Her aim is to become a large trader in the years to come.

Mapendo is very grateful to the field partner, Hekima for the support which they offer to poor, economically active women.
