Mamata's story

Mamata is a married woman. She has 4 children, 3 of which go to school.

She is a merchant, and she has been selling cartons of eggs and peanuts to her sellers for 10 years in a quarter of the capital. She is on her seventh loan cycle with Yikri and she is up to date with her reimbursements of previous loans.

She is requesting a loan to buy 45 cartons of eggs and 7 bags of peanuts to respond to the needs of her customers. She plans to use her earnings to reinvest in her work and to save money for her children’s schooling.
