Bouokpiera's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy rice, oil, charcoal, and condiments for her restaurant and to cover the children's school fees.

Bouokpiera's story

Bouokpiera is a married woman who has five children, of whom three are in school. She has a restaurant in an outlying district and has been keeping it going for eight years, thanks to her warm welcomes and the customer base she acquired over time.

Now on her 5th loan cycle at YIKRI, she is requesting this loan to pay for ten sacks of rice, five 20-liter containers oil, ten sacks of charcoal, and some condiments to stock up for her food preparation. She could then satisfy customer demand, since her friends and family patronize her restaurant.

Her wish is to use the earning to reinvest in her business and to save money in order to help her husband in covering their children’s school fees.
