Koudougou Marceline's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy five sacks of beans and save to support her children.

Koudougou Marceline's story

Koudougou Marceline is a 68-year-old woman and mother of nine children between the ages of 15 and 40, three of whom are in school. She has been trading in a village for over 30 years where she buys grain stocks and resells them at the right time.

She is on her second loan cycle with the Yikri MFI and is applying for this loan to buy five sacks of beans to increase her stock of goods. She will reinvest to expand her work and also save to support her children.
