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


A loan helped this borrower to buy a motor pump, 5 sacks of fertilizers, 60 liters of gas and other supplies.


Saidou's story

Saidou is the married father of 4 children ages 2 to 14 years old, 2 of whom go to school. He has been raising livestock and growing crops for 17 years in an outlying area. This is his 5th loan cycle with the Yikri MFI and he repaid his previous loan without difficulty.

Saidou will use this new loan to buy a motor pump, 5 sacks of fertilizers, 60 liters of gas and other supplies to bolster his crop for future sales.

He will use his profits to reinvest in his activities and to strengthen his savings to cover the cost of his children's tuition.

Saidou thanks Yikri and its partners for supporting non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI credits, he manages to provide for his family.
