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


A loan helped to buy 18 sacks of onions and to save to take care of her children.


Biliaissa's story

Biliaissa is a married woman and the mother of five children ranging from 4-20 years old. Three of them go to school. She is a retail seller and works in speculating on onions. She has bought the onions in an area on the outskirts of town for 14 years. She stores them and resells them at an opportune time.

She is on her fourth loan with the microfinance institution YIKRI. She requests the loan to buy 18 sacks of onions with the plan of reselling them at the right time. She counts on using the profit to reinvest in her off-season farming, and to save to take care of her children.
