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


A loan helped to get fresh supplies of salted fish, which will boost her initial capital.


Batumike Nyatende Group's story

Nsimire is a customer of Hekima IMF and president of the "Batumike Nyatende" village group. She is 45 years old, married and mother to 12 children, who are all at school. Her husband is a builder.

She sells fish and began this business in 2010 with starting capital received from her husband. Later on she joined the Hekima program to support her business, which during this time has progressively grown.

With this new loan she is going to get fresh supplies of salted fish, which will boost her initial capital. The challenge in her business is linked to rainy periods. She would like her children to continue studying and also to build up her business.

Finally she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support it provides to businesses that cannot access bank funding in the context of the global Covid-19 crisis. The photo is of the group leader only, in order to respect Covid-19 social distancing measures.
