A loan of $3,725 helped a member to purchase a bale of curtains.


Musingi Bora Group's story

This client, Aime, is a merchant and the vice-president of the business collective “Musingi Bora”. An entrepreneur and energetic, she is 32 years old and a married mother of six children, of whom three are in school, and three are still little. This client is a vendor of used curtains. She sets ups her merchandise at the town’s busy market. She started her business with initial capital from a lending institution. Her husband is a public servant. Later on, Aime benefited from a loan from the microfinance institution Hekima. She has been in this business for four years.

This new loan is going to be used to purchase a bale of curtains. Thus, she would like to grow her business and provide schooling, clothing, and food for those in her care.

In conclusion, she thanks Hekima very much for supporting autonomy among unbanked women entrepreneurs, especially during this critical moment post-conflict in the country’s east.
