Alizeta's story

Alizeta is 30 years old and mother of four children, two of whom go to school; the eldest is 9 years old and the youngest is 11 months. She has a location in her neighbourhood where she has been running her business for over four years now.

She works in the sale (wholesale and retail) of various items. She is on her seventh loan cycle with the YIKRI MFI and repays her loans well. She is requesting a loan to buy five boxes of spaghetti, 25 cans of oil, 15 boxes of soap, 39 sacks of rice, Omo, and flour, to satisfy the demand of her resellers and customers.

With the profits, she will reinvest in her work, build up her stock, and pay for her children's education.
