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


A loan helped to purchase six sacks of beans, 10 sacks of ground nuts, two sacks of dried okra, and to save toward improving her family's living conditions.


Mamounata's story

Mamounata is a mother of five, and two of her children attend school. She has been selling cereal grains for one year, which she has combined with selling dry vegetables and spices. She is on her eighth loan cycle with YIKRI and easily repays her loans.

Mamounata is requesting a loan to purchase six sacks of beans, 10 sacks of ground nuts, two sacks of dried okra, two sacks of pearl millet, and two sacks of dried [silky cotton fibers from the] kapok [tree] to meet her customers' needs. She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save so she can improve her family's living conditions. Mamounata thanks Kiva lenders.
