Ubumwe Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped stock up on sugar, cooking oil, juice, flour which will reinforce her initial capital.

Ubumwe Group's story

Mme Eugenie is a Hekima client and oversees the village group UBUMWE. She is married, 57 years old and the mother of ten who are all responsible. Her partner is unemployed.

She sells a variety of items in her store which she began ten years ago with the start up funds provided by her husband. In time, she joined Hekima to support her business which has developed progressively. This new loan will allow her to purchase sugars, cooking oil, juice, and flour which will reinforce her initial capital. Her business is running without issue.

Mme Eugenie would like to be able to feed her family. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support given to non-bankable business owners in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. The picture is of her alone as the group's leader due to the social distancing measures required due to the Covid-19 crisis.
