Riziki Mpya Group's story

The customer, Marie, is a trader and member of the Riziki Moya business group. She is 41 years old, single and mother to one child, who goes to school. The customer sells food products and lays out her goods at the entrance to the town. She began her business with funds given to her by her boyfriend. She has been carrying out this business for the past ten years. This new loan will be used to buy 50 kilos of sugar, 50 kilos of rice, vegetable oils and five kilos of powdered soap. She is planning to buy a plot of land to build on, and to be able to clothe, feed and educate her only son. Finally, she is extremely grateful to Hekima for giving autonomy to female entrepreneurs who do not have access to banks, particularly during this critical post-conflict period in the eastern region of the country.
