Maman Ramatou's story

Maman Ramatou is 30 years old, married, and mother of a 15-year-old child who is studying. She has been working in the trade and sale of condiments for 10 years in a market in the capital.

She is on her seventh loan cycle with YIKRI and repays her loans well; she repaid her first Kiva loan without difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to buy 10 crates of tomatoes, 25 sacks of onions, and 16 sacks of cabbages to satisfy the demand of her resellers and customers.

She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her work and to save to improve her family's living conditions.

Finally, she thanks YIKRI and partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI loans, she is able to save to take care of her family.
