Uzima Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for two bales of secondhand clothing and the transport costs.

Uzima Group's story

Ms. MARCELINE has been a client of the microfinance institution Hekima for ten years and the president of the community bank named UZIMA. A married woman, she is the mother of seven children, of whom three are still in school. She is 52 and has been a vendor of secondhand clothing at the local central market for thirty years. She started with funds from her husband and then from Hekima later.

With this loan, she is going to pay for two bales of used clothing and the transport costs to bolster her initial capital. Her ambitions include renovating her house, providing an education and food for her children, and also purchasing a car for her husband, who was a chauffeur. She says thank you very much to Hekima and its partners who did well to select mothers as a category.
