A loan helped to buy néré seeds and to save money to buy land for her children.


Louise Fati's story

Ms. Louise Fati, aged 56, is the married mother of seven children, aged 12 to 32, of whom four are in school. She is active in retail commerce and has been making soumbala [pounded and fermented seeds used in cooking] to sell at a local market.

Now on her 5th loan cycle with the microfinance institution YIKRI, she is asking for a loan to purchase 12 sacks of néré seeds to make soumbala to sell to retailers. The loan is for stocking enough in supplies to satisfy her customers. She plans to use her earnings to reinvest in her business and to save money to buy land for her children.
