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


A loan helped to buy tubeless tires, tires and other parts and save money to take care of his parents.


Noufou's story

Noufou is single and has no children. He is a mechanic and he has been selling spare parts in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the city for three years. This is his 4th loan from YIKRI and he repaid his 1st loan from Kiva with no problems.

Once again he is requesting a loan to buy tubeless tires, tires and other parts in order to satisfy the demand from his customers. He hopes to use his earnings to reinvest in his business and to take care of his parents.

Finally he thanks YIKRI and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked entrepreneurs. Thanks to the loan from YIKRI, he manages to put aside money to take care of his parents.
