Bora Uzima Group's story

Josephine is a client of IMF Hekima and president of the "Bora Uzima" business group. She is 52 years old, divorced and the mother of four children who all go to school.

She sells food products. She started this business 15 years ago with funds received from her family. She later joined the Hekima program to support her business, during which time she progressively expanded her business. With this new loan she will stock up on palm oil and beans which will enhance her initial capital. The challenge in her business is the decrease in demand due to COVID-19.

She would like to grow her business and support the needs of her family. In closing she would like to thank Hekima and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked business owners during this global crisis brought about by COVID-19. The photo is of the group leader only because of COVID-19.
