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


A loan helped to purchase sacks of potatoes, which will strengthen her initial capital.


Ubuzima Group's story

Mme Bulenda is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the UBUZIMA business group. She is 49 years old, divorced, and the mother of 3 children, all of whom are in school.

She sells potatoes out of a warehouse. She started this business 22 years ago with start-up funds she received from her former husband prior to their divorce. Later on she joined Hekima to support her business, which has grown gradually since then. With this new loan she plans to purchase sacks of potatoes, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge she faces is that her potatoes could rot.

Mme Bulenda would like to have her children continue their education and to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they have shown to owners of businesses that have no monetary value during this global Covid-19 crisis.
