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

A loan helped to buy 60 CST motorbike tyres and 100 motorbike inner tubes and to save for his children's future.

Kondopousgo's story

Kondopousgo is father of 10 children, the oldest being 26 years old and the youngest 6 years old; six of the children go to school. He is a mechanic and seller of individual motorbike parts.

He has been doing this work for more than 10 years by a large road in a neighbourhood of the capital. He is on his sixth loan cycle with YIKRI and repaid his first Kiva loan without difficulty.

He is requesting a new loan to buy 60 CST motorbike tyres and 100 motorbike inner tubes in order to meet the needs of the road users. He plans to use his profits to enlarge his mechanic's workshop and to save to ensure his children's futures.

Finally, he thanks YIKRI and partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI loans, he is able to save to look after his children.
