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


A loan helped to buy 10 lengths of Hitarget pagnes, 15 lengths of Real pagnes and dresses, as well as to save money to buy a plot of land.


Mariam's story

Mariam is the mother of 5 older children, 4 of whom attend school. She has been selling clothing in a market of the capital city for 8 years.

This is her seventh loan with the Yikri MFI and she has had no trouble paying back her first Kiva loan. She is asking for a new loan to buy 10 lengths of Hitarget pagnes, 15 lengths of Real pagnes and dresses to meet the needs of her customers. She wants to use the profits from her sales to reinvest in her business and to save money to buy a plot of land.
