Beatrice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase 15 bags of rice, and five bags of corn flour, to improve her restaurant, and to save to construct a new home.
Beatrice is a restauranteur and opened a small neighborhood restaurant 10 years ago. She is the mother of three children ages 12-17 years-old who go to school. She is in her fifth loan cycle with the micro-finance institution YIKRI and she has customers that frequent her restaurant every day. She pays her loans back well. She asks for a loan to purchase 15 bags of rice, five bags of corn flour, and to improve her restaurant for the satisfaction of her customers. She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her business and to save to construct a new home.
