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


A loan helped to buy 100 sacks of corn and 12 sacks of beans and to save to pay for her children's schooling.


Bila's story

Bila is married and mother of three children who are in school. She is a salesperson and has been selling cereals wholesale and retail in a market in the capital for over 28 years.

She is on her seventh loan cycle with the YIKRI MFI and repays her loans well. She is asking for a new loan to buy 100 sacks of corn and 12 sacks of beans to stock in her shop and resell to her customers.

This will enable her to increase her turnover and to save to pay for her children's education.
