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

A loan helped to buy six bags of bundles of thread and dye, and to save to improve her family's living conditions.

Mariam's story

Mariam is the mother of a child and she has two other people in her care. She has been a weaver of traditional pagnes [colorful cloth used as garments] in an area on the outskirts of the capital for 22 years. She is on her sixth loan with Yikri and pays her loans back without difficulty. She is requesting a loan to buy six bundles of thread and dye to weave pagnes and satisfy her customer base. She counts on using her profits to reinvest in her business and to save to improve her family’s living conditions.
