Yesu Anaweza Group's story

Judith is a merchant and a member of the "Yesu Anaweza" business association. She is a dynamic 42-year-old entrepreneur, and the responsible mother of four children, of whom two attend school and two are under school age. She is shareholder of a restaurant in the center of the city.

She is requesting a loan from Hekima to increase her business. She started with funds received from her husband (while he lived). She has been in business for the past eleven years.

She will buy one bag of rice, beans, charcoal, potatoes, 20 liters of oil, sugar, milk, cassava flour, etc. In the future, she wants to increase her activity, educate and feed her children.

She thanks Hekima for its support to men and women entrepreneurs excluded from the traditional banking system. It should be pointed out that one of the members is carrying a baby on her back.
