Hima cement factory happens to be one of those businesses that still suffer from the problem of IT-divide moreover falling on the lower side. It almost only carries out business with those that can physically access their different offices or the plant itself. And this has hindered its economic growth as some customers are geographically eliminated for fear to incur extra costs in traveling to the few districts where hima has offices.
