Ufunuo Group's story

Aimerence, a customer of the microfinance institution Hekima [Kiva's partner in DRC], is the representative of the banc villageois "UFUNUO". She is forty six years old and a mother of four, with only one of her children going to school. Her first source of funding came from her father and then she got support from Hekima. With this loan, she will buy 300 kg of beans and 400 kg of cassava flour, including transport costs, in order to strengthen her initial capital. She is planning to buy a large field in order to become a producer and supplier of beans. She would like to express her sincere thanks again to Hekima and their partner Kiva for their financial support to the poor.
