Safiata's story

Safiata is 37 years old, single, and has one 15-year-old child who goes to school. She is a merchant. She has run a hair salon and sold juice (a local kind) for 10 years.

She is on her fourth loan cycle with the micro-finance institution YIKRI. She repaid her first loan with Kiva without difficulties. She is seeking a new loan to buy 50 hair extensions, pearls, ointments, and various goods in order to satisfy customer demand as the end of the year festivities approach.

She hopes to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save so she can take care of her child.

Finally, Safiata is ever grateful to YIKRI and their partners for their support to entrepreneurs who lack access to banking services. Thanks to YIKRI loans, she is able to take care of her child.
