A loan helped to buy used shoes, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Unyenyekevu Group's story

Madam Georgette is a client of Hekima MFI and presides over the village group “Unyenyekevu”. She is married, 45 years old, and has 5 children who all go to school. Her partner is unemployed, and she sells used shoes.

She started this business 14 years ago with start-up capital received from her husband. She later involved the Hekima programme to support her business, during which it gradually evolved. With this new loan, she is going to buy used shoes, which will strengthen her initial capital. Her business faces some challenges linked to state taxes.

She would like her children to continue studying and, lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to owners of businesses that cannot be exchanged for cash in this global COVID-19 crisis.
