Ufundi 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 second-hand shoes for resale.

Ufundi Group's story

Mrs. Esther is a client of the Hekima MFI and president of the group UFUNDI. She is the 56-year-old married mother of four school-educated children. Her husband is unemployed.

Esther sells second-hand shoes. She launched this activity in 1993 with starting capital supplied by her husband. She later joined Hekima to help sustain her business which has continued to grow steadily.

She will use this new loan to buy second-hand shoes to bolster her stock. Her main challenge is the lack of merchandise.

She wants her children to pursue their education and to expand her activity.

She wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for helping non-bankable business owners during the Covid-19 global pandemic.
