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

A loan helped to purchase 9 bags of coal, which will reinforce her initial capital.

Vie Nouvelle Group's story

Madam Ndamuso is a client of Hekima; she presides over the Vie Nouvelle Group. At 45, she is divorced and the mother of six school-age children.

Madam Ndamus is a vendor. She sells coal, and has over a decade's experience in this sector. She began her business with the financial backing of her former husband, later on partnering with Hekima in order to support her business, which has developed well.

With this new loan, Madam Ndambuso plans to purchase nine bags of coal, which she will use to reinforce her initial capital. The main difficulty her business faces is tied to the rainy season, when it is difficulty for her truck on the road.

Madam Ndambuso hopes to provide a good education for her children and renovate her house with the revenue from her business.

Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to non-bankable small business owners, particularly in the context of the global Covid-19.

In order to maintain social distancing practices, only the group leader is being photographed at this time.
