Maombi Group's story

Kabumba Immaculee is an entrepreneur and she is also the treasurer of the group named Maombi. She is 35 years old, she is married, and she is the mother of 6 children. All of her children are in school. Her husband is a master carpenter and an independent tradesman. Kabumba Immaculee sells fresh fish along the locale roads. She started her business with her own money. She has had this same business since 1994. She accessed a loan of $50 in 2005 from IMF Hekima (Kiva Field Partner). This new loan will help her purchase more products (4 baskets of fresh fish) for resale. In addition, she hopes to travel to Ouganda-Kisoro to purchase fish without having to buy from retailers. Kabumba Immaculee is grateful to Hekima for their actions towards the poor who are otherwise excluded from traditional banks. The Maombi group is made up of 31 members.
