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

A loan helped to buy two balls of weaving yarn and to save to pay for her children's education.

Ipala Naoumie's story

Ipala Naoumie is 57 years old. She is a weaver and has woven traditional, high quality pagnes [colorful cloth worn as garments] at her home in an area on the outskirts of the capital, for 20 years. She is the mother of seven children, three of whom go to school, and she has another person in her care. She is on her second loan with YIKRI. She is requesting a loan to buy two balls of weaving yarn to satisfy her customer demand.

She counts on using the profits to reinvest in her business and to save to pay for her children’s education.
