Nshobole Group's story

Mme Vumilia is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the banque villageoise Nshobole. She is married, 47 years old, and the mother of nine children, all of whom are in school. Her partner is a merchant.

She is a food vender. She started her business in 1980 with startup funds from her husband. Later she became involved in the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which she progressively improved. With this new loan, she is going to acquire ten sacks of sweets potatoes, which will reinforce her initial capital. The weakness in her business in linked to the increased exchange rate for dollars.

She would like to become a wholesaler. Finally, she wants to thank Hekima and its partners for supporting business owners without means during the global crisis linked to Covid-19. The photo is only of the group leader due to Covid-19.
