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

A loan helped to acquire 25 bales of second-hand clothing, which will add to her startup capital.

Bosembo Group's story

Mme. Immaculee is a client of Hekima IMF and presides over the business group "Bosembo". She is married, 45-years-old, and the mother of 8 children, all of whom go to school. Her partner is a farmer.

She is a seller of second-hand clothing. She started this business in 1995 with startup funds from her husband. Later, she became involved in the Hekima program to support her business. Over the course of her involvement, her business has grown steadily. With this new loan, she plans to buy 25 bales of second-hand clothing, which will add to her standing capital. The challenge of her business is tied to a lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue their studies and that she feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they bring to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of global crisis linked to Covid-19.
