Kouiliga Zalissa's story

Kouiliga Zalissa is the mother of six children, five of whom attend school. She has been a merchant in a peripheral neighbourhood for over 18 years, where she stocks up on cereals and resells them at opportune times.

This is her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repaid her second Kiva loan without difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to buy 45 bags of peanuts to increase her stock of goods. She will use some of her profits to reinvest in and grow her business. She will also save money to provide for her children.

Finally, she thanks YIKRI and its partners for the support they provide to non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI loans, she has been able to support her children.
