Boureima's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy two sacks of yams, 30 sacks of corn, and three sacks of cassava, and to save to finish his course.

Boureima's story

Boureima is a father of two children and a trader. He sells yams and cassava which he combines with selling maize cereals in a market in the capital. He has been doing this work for six years.

He is at his fifth loan cycle with Yikri and repays his loans well. He is requesting a loan to buy two sacks of yams, 30 sacks of maize, and three sacks of cassava to increase his sales and profits.

He aims to use his profits to reinvest in his work and to save to finish his course.
