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


A loan helped to stock up on wholesale oil which will strengthen her initial capital.


Bandu Group's story

Ms. Yvonne, 46, is a client of the IMF Hekima and heads the independent group Bandu. She is married and a mother of five children all of whom go to school. Her partner is a doctor.

Yvonne sells oil. She began this business in the year 2000 with start-up funds received from her husband. Later, she was involved in the Hekima program to support her business during which time she gradually progressed. With this new loan, she is going to stock up on wholesale oil which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge is this business is theft.

Yvonne would like her children to go to school and she wants to feed her family. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for their support towards non-bankable business owners.
