A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy 4 bags of maize.

Ufalme Group's story

Sekera, the customer, is an advisor to the "Ufalme" business group. A doyenne and experienced, dynamic entrepreneur, she is 61 years old, widowed and the mother of 8 children, 4 of whom go to school. The others already have their own households. Sekera sells maize. She displays her products at home. She started her business about 30 years ago with her own funds, received from her husband. This new loan will be used to buy 4 bags of maize. She would like to increase her business, feed and educate her children and buy them a plot of land. The lack of sufficient capital is a challenge to the growth of her business. Finally, she wishes to strongly thank Hekima for its support of small entrepreneurs in the form of microloans.
