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


A loan helped to stock up on Bralima and Brasimba drinks (local beers), which will build up her working capital.


Ufalme Group's story

Josephine is a client of the IMF Hekima and presides over the "groupe villageoise" UFALME. She is married, 45 years old and the mother of five children, all of whom go to school. Her partner is a civil servant. She sells beverages. She started this business 16 years ago with funds received from her husband. Later, she got involved with the Hekima program to support her business, over the course of which, she has progressively evolved. With this new loan, she is going to stock up with Bralima and Brasimba drinks (local beers), which will build up her working capital. The challenge in her business is tied to unpaid debts. She would like for her children to continue to study and to feed her family. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to nonbankable business owners in the context of this global crisis tied to COVID-19. The photo is only of the leader of the group because of COVID-19 and respecting the social distancing measures.
