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

A loan helped to purchase 2 bags of Attieké [cassava couscous], 2 bottles of oil, and condiments, as well as save money to better care for her family.

Aligueta's story

Aligueta is the mother of four children, two of which attend school. She has run a food stand for the past two years. This is Aligueta's third loan cycle with YIKRI; she has made all her repayments on time.

With this new loan, she will be able to purchase 2 bags of Attieké [fermented cassava couscous, a regional dish] and 2 bottles of oil, as well as ingredients for her stand. This will help her satisfy customer demand.

Aligueta plans to use her revenue to reinvest in her business and increase her savings, which she uses to cover family expenses. She thanks Kiva lenders and urges everyone to protect themselves during the Covid-19 crisis.
