Hamado Pascal's story

Hamado Pascal is the married father of 8 children ages 2 to 21 years old. He is a market gardener and has been growing onions for 6 years in an outlying district.

This is his 3rd loan cycle with the Yikri MFI and prior loans have been repaid without problems. He is seeking this new loan to buy 2 boxes of onion bulbs, 4 bags of fertilizer, 80 liters of gas and 2 cartons of insecticide to bolster his crop.

He will use his profits to invest in off-season crop activities and to build up his savings to support his children's education.

He wishes to thank Yikri and its partners for helping non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to the loans obtained through Yikri, he is able to cover the costs of his children's tuition.
