Ashuza Group's story

Cikala is a member of the Ashuza loan group. She is married to a Congolese civil servant and has been selling second-hand shoes since 2006 so she can feed her four children and send them to school. The loan she is requesting will enable her to buy four bundles of second-hand shoes. Her dream is to become a major local supplier. Cikala would like to thank Hekima for the support it gives to poor businesswomen.
