Joanny's story

Joanny is 34 years old and is the father of three children who go to school. He is a welder and he opened a welding shop in a market on the outskirts of the capital which he has operated for 15 years.

This is his 7th loan cycle with YIKRI. He is requesting a loan to buy 300 metal plates and 300 rims to make stoves to sell to his customers. He hopes to use the earnings to reinvest in his business and put aside money for his children's education.
