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


A loan helped to purchase fabric, thermal glue, poplin, and Vaseline, which will strengthen her initial capital.


La Seve Group's story

Nalubatsi is a client with the MFI, Hekima, and runs the village group, "La Seve." She is married, 40 years old, and a mother of 2 children who are both in school. Her partner is unemployed.

She is a tailor. She started this business 20 years ago with start-up funds from her income-generating activities. Later, she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which has grown gradually.

With this new loan, she will buy fabric, thermal glue, poplin, and Vaseline, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge her business faces is related to unpaid debts.

She would like her children to continue studying and to feed her family.

Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to business owners without access to traditional banking facilities in the context of the global crisis related to Covid-19.
