Rafiki Group's story

Maliro is an honest tradeswoman. She is energetic and has been running a business for eight years. She is aged 35, married, and mother of three children all of whom go to school. She is the president and a member of the Rafiki business group. She sells fruit in a vehicle park on the edge of the town. She requests a loan from Hekima to expand her business. She would like to buy four bunches of plantain bananas and three baskets of avocados, etc. She started her business with money that was given to her by her husband. Her husband is a chalk professional (teacher). In the future she hopes to feed her children and send them to school. She thanks Hekima for their support by offering loans to women in business that are not bankable, especially during this time of post-conflict in the Eastern region of the country.
