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

A loan helped to buy 75 pagnes (traditional cloth) and 5 units of rolls of thread and pay for her children's education.

Tene's story

Tene is a woman of 40 who is the mother of 5 children between the age of 2 and 22. Four attend school.

Tene is a weaver; she weaves pagnes (traditional cloth) of high-quality at her home in a neighborhood on the periphery of the capital. She has woven pagnes for the last decade.

This is Tene's sixth loan cycle with Yikri. She plans to use this loan to purchase 75 pagnes for resale, and 5 units of rolls of thread in order to weave traditional cloth in order to satisfy customer demand.

Tene plans to reinvest her profits in her business and save up to pay for her children's school fees.
