She is requesting a loan from Hekima to increase her activity. She will buy four bags of maize, cassava flour, tomatoes, small fish, charcoal, etc. Her spouse is a driver for a local company. She started her business with funds received from her husband. In the future, she wants to increase her working capital, educate and feed her children.
