Bunyibunyi Group's story

Borauzima is a dynamic woman and vice-president of the Bunyibunyi business association. She is 28 years old, married to a public-school teacher, and mother of four children who are not yet old enough to go to school. She started her business with funds that she received in 2007 from her husband and her older sister.

The loan that she is currently seeking will enable her to buy 2 boxes of batteries, 5 dozen boxes of beauty lotion, 1 box of tobacco, 2 boxes of soap, and 1 box of plastic packaging. She fears competition, but she is striving to move her business forward by expanding into rural areas.

She would like to thank Hekima for dedicating its attention to women's businesses.
