A loan helped to pay for 100 sacks of corn and to save money to take better care of her family.

Aminata's story

Aminata is a married woman with four children, aged 7 to 18, of whom two are in school. She has two persons to support. A merchant, she has been selling cornmeal, as well as plasticware, at the markets in the western Africa sub-region for ten years.

Now on her 7th loan cycle with the microfinance institution YIKRI, she repays her loans on time. She repaid her first KIVA loan without a problem and is requesting a new one to purchase 100 sacks of corn to produce cornmeal in bulk, so as to respond to customer needs abroad.

She plans to use her earnings to reinvest in her business and to save money to improve her family's living conditions. So she thanks YIKRI and its partners for supporting unbanked entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI loans, she is managing to save money to take care of her family.
