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

A loan helped to buy two bales of used clothing, bolstering her working capital.

Uhaki Group's story

Ms. Georgette is a customer of the Hekima IMF and the leader of the Uhaki group villageoise. She is married, 57 years old and has five children, two of whom are in school. Her husband is unemployed.

Georgette sells used clothing. She launched this business since 10 years ago with launching funds received from the Hekima program to support her initiative and has since been growing her business gradually.

With this new loan, Georgette will buy two bales of used clothing, bolstering her working capital. Her business is not facing any issues.

Georgette would like to ensure that her children continue their education and to support her family. In conclusion, Georgette thanks Hekima and its partners for its support of business owners who lack access to funding, especially in this time of a global crisis related to Covid-19. Only the group leader appears in the photo to respect social distancing due to Covid-19.
