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

A loan helped to buy fuel, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Chaguma Group's story

Mrs. Nsimire is a client of Hekima MFI and is the president of the village group "CHAGUMA". She is a widow, 53 years old and mother of 9 children who are all in school.

She sells fuel. She started this business 10 years ago with the start-up funds received from her late husband. Later, she involved the Hekima program to support her business, during which she gradually evolved. With this new loan, she is going to buy fuel, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is the unpaid debts.

She would like her children to continue studying and she would also like to expand her business.

Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support provided to owners of non-bankable businesses in this context of the global covid-19 crisis. The photo only shows the leader of the group due to Covid-19, in compliance with social distancing measures.
