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

A loan helped to buy 20 bags of rice, 7 cans of oil, phone cards, so he can save and care for his family.

Idrissa's story

Idrissa is married and has two children. He has been a retailer in a neighborhood outside the capital for already 10 years. He has a shop where he sells groceries and phone cards.

His business is doing well, but he has a small capital and is often stuck when his credit is used up. This is his sixth loan cycle with Yikri. He paid back his second Kiva loan without difficulty. He is requesting a new loan to buy 20 bags of rice, 7 cans of oil, and phone cards so he can satisfy his customers, and increase his income and profits. He wants to use the profits from this loan to expand his business and make some savings so he can care for his family. He urges everyone to protect themselves from COVID-19.
