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

A loan helped to purchase tires in bulk, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Umoja Kibabi Group's story

Ms. Kikoko is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the village group Umoja Kibabi. She is married, 36 years old, and mother of 7 children, 3 who go to school, 2 babies, and 2 adults; her partner is a State Agent.
She is a hardware product salesperson. She started this business 11 years ago with the start-up funds received from the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she will source wholesale tires, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her work is linked to state taxes.
She would like her children to continue studying and to pay her rent. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and their partners for the support provided to owners of non-cash-converting businesses in this context of the global Covid-19 crisis.
