Ushindi 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 used shoes which will increase her working capital.

Ushindi Group's story

Mme Florida is a client of Hekima IMF and chairs the groupe villageoise, USHINDI. She is the 52 year-old married mother of nine children who are all in school. Her husband is out of work.

She sells shoes and started this business in 2008 with start-up funds she received from her husband. Since then, she has become involved with the Hekima program to support her business. In this program, she has gradually evolved. With this loan she will stock up on used shoes which will increase her capital. The challenge to her business concerns the lack of customers.

She would like for her children to continue with their studies and to be able to build a home. Further, she would like to thank Hakima and its partners for the support given to those business owners who do not have access to traditional banking services in this context of the global crisis involving COVID-19.
