Uaminifu Group's story

Vambesa is a leader of the business group called « Uaminifu», an older and experienced entrepreneur, aged 47, mother of six children who are enrolled in school. Her husband is a civil servant in public administration.

This client is an artist. She does hand embroidery and displays her work in her home. She began her business with her own money. Later on, she was able to take advantage of additional funds from a loan from MFI Hekima. She has been in this field for 10 [years]. She has been able to carry out various small projects for her family, using the profit from her business.

This new loan will serve her to buy materials (8 meters of cloth, 12 packets of thread, 5 meters of golden brown fringe, etc.) In this way, she hopes to keep her children in school and build a nice house out of durable materials. Debtors and selling on credit are the challenges for the development of her business. Finally, she would like to thank Hekima sincerely for its support with micro-loans dedicated to small entrepreneurs who cannot be served by banks, during this critical period of war.
