Nsimire 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 fresh fish and increase her working capital.

Nsimire Group's story

Pierrette is a client of Hekima and leader of the 'groupe villageoise' Nsimire. She is 39, married and has seven children who all went to school. Her husband is a builder.

She has been selling fresh fish for 20 years which started with funds from her husband. Later on she joined Hekima so she could expand gradually.

With the this new loan, she will buy more fish for sale and increase her working capital.
Her problem is a lack of customers. She wants her children to be educated and also buy some land. She thanks Hekima for their support of non-bankable women, especially during the Covid crisis. She is the only person shown from their group as they respect social distancing.
