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

A loan helped this borrower to buy 20 sheep and some feed.

Boureima's story

Boureima is a 52-year-old polygamous man and father to 10 children aged 1 to 25 years old, 5 of whom attend school. He has been rearing ruminants for over 12 years in an outlying district. He is experienced with small ruminants.

This is Boureima's 8th loan cycle with the YIKRI MFI and his repayments are made in a timely manner. He is seeking this new loan to buy 20 sheep and some feed to raise them for resale at a later date.

Proceeds from the sales will be reinvested in his activity and added to his savings to help him provide for his children.
