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


A loan helped to buy thirty pieces of lace, twelve Uniwax pagnes and fifteen shawls, and to save up some money to improve her family's living conditions.


Limata's story

Limata is the mother of three children who all attend school and she has another four people under her care. She has been selling clothes at a market in the capital city for fifteen years. This is currently her tenth loan cycle with YIKRI. She made all the reimbursements for her previous loans and she paid back her first Kiva loan. She is applying for a new loan to buy thirty pieces of lace, twelve Uniwax pagnes and fifteen shawls to resell to her customers and make good profits. She is planning to use her earnings to reinvest in her business and to save up some money to improve her family's living conditions. She would like to thank the Kiva lenders and encourages everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
