Ubumwe Group's story

This client, Ngarukuye, is a good and honest merchant, an entrepreneur for twenty years, and the president and a member of the business group “Ubumwe”. She is 51 years old and a married mother of seven children, all provided with education. She sells a variety of items and is an associate of a grocery store. She displays her merchandise in the parking lot at the town’s exit.

She is requesting a loan from Hekima to grow her business. She is going to purchase some breads, sausages, beignets, cookies, cleaning products, etc. Her husband has no job. She benefited from initial capital from her husband when he was employed.

For the future, she would like to bolster her business and provide education, clothing, and food for her children. She thanks Hekima for its support of unbanked women entrepreneurs.
