Tuliya Group's story

Nakinja is a client who is a saleswoman with ten years' experience. She is 39 years old and is married with eight children. Six of them attend school and the other two are still small. This client is a member of the business group named Tuliya. She sells secondhand clothes. She sets out her merchandise in the busy town market. She requests a loan from Hekima to expand her business. She hopes to buy one bundle of secondhand clothes. She started her business with money from her salary, as she was a teacher. Her spouse is a stonemason. In the future she hopes to increase her credit, and feed her children and send them to school. She thanks Hekima for their support for non-bankable businesswomen by giving them a micro-credit, especially at this time following the conflict in the eastern region of the country. It should be noted that the client is carrying her baby on her back.
