Alimata's story

Alimata is a mother of 5, 4 of whom are in school. She is a merchant and sells grains in a market in the capital and in the neighbouring markets. She has been doing this for over 8 years. This is her 6th loan cycle with YIKRI and she has repaid her second loan on Kiva without issue. She is requesting a new loan to buy 20 bags of corn and 20 bags of red sorghum to satisfy her clients' demand. She plans to use her income to improve her business and save up to improve her family's conditions. Finally, she says thank you to YIKRI and its partners for their support to non-bankable borrowers.
