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

A loan helped to buy fish wholesale.

Ufahamu Group's story

Gulaine is a customer of the MFI Hekima and leader of the "banque villageoise" UFAHAMU. She is 42, widowed, and has 3 children who attend school.

She has been selling fish for 26 years after starting her business with funding she received thanks to her participation in a mutual savings group. She will use this loan to buy fish wholesale for her business. The challenge her business faces comes from the lack of safety on the routes that are used to transport the fish which results in the occasional loss of goods.

She would like keep her children in school and to make sure that the family is fed.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable entrepreneurs.
