Samyata's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy nine bales of rolls of weaving thread and ten kilos of dyes so she can save to improve her family's living conditions.


Samyata's story

Samyata is mother to four children, three of whom go to school. She is a weaver and has been weaving quality traditional "pagnes" (pieces of colorful fabric that are popular in western Africa) at home in the outskirts of the capital for more than 12 years.

She is on her fifth loan cycle with IMF Yikri and is requesting a new loan to buy nine bales of rolls of weaving thread and ten kilos of dyes, so that she can weave a large quantity of traditional "pagnes" to satisfy customer demand.

She is planning to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save money to improve her family's living conditions.
