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

A loan helped to buy 10 cases of various beverages, which will boost her initial capital.

Ufunuo Group's story

Sylvanie is a client of the MFI Hekima and president of the Ufunuo village group. She is 54 years old, married and the mother of nine children who are all in school. Her partner is a businessman.

Sylvanie sells beverages, a business she began in 1986 with startup funds from her husband. Later, she got involved in Hekima's program to support her business which has gradually expanded. The lack of customers is the major challenge in her business.

With this new loan, Sylvanie is going to buy 10 cases of various beverages to boost her initial capital.

She would like for her children to continue their education and to be able to pay her rent. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they are providing to unbankable companies during the covid-19 global crisis.
