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

A loan helped to buy various make-up, which will strengthen her initial capital.

Ushirika Busness Group's story

Mrs. HABAMUJUWI is a client of Hekima MFI and is the president of the village group "USHIRIKA BUSNESS". She is married, 39 years old and mother of 8 children, 5 of whom are in school. Her partner is a merchant.

She sells make-up. She started this business 4 years ago with the start-up funds received from her 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 various makeup products, which will strengthen her initial capital. The challenge of her business is the lack of customers.

She would like her children to continue studying and to provide for her family.

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.
