Ufunuo 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 with second-hand shoes which will boost her working capital.


Ufunuo Group's story

Elmeride is a IMF Hekima customer and a member of the village group, UFUNUO. She is married, 42, and mother of eight children who are all in school and her partner is a travelling salesman.
She sells second-hand shoes and started doing this eight years ago with start-up funds from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima programme to support her business during which time it has gradually progressed. With this new loan, she will stock up with second-hand shoes which will boost her working capital. The threat to her business is linked to the exchange rate with the dollar.
She would like her children to be able to continue with their education and to be able to feed them. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to non-bankable business owners in the context of this global crisis linked to Covid-19.
