Zalissa's story

Balisa is the mother of 6 children, 5 of whom go to school. She has worked as a merchant for over 16 years in an outlying area of town. She buys cereals that she stores and resells at the appropriate time.

This is her fifth cycle of loans with Yikri, and she has paid back her first Kiva loan without difficulties. She is asking for a new loan to buy 240 trays of locust bean seeds to store them and resell to her customers. She wants to use the profits from her sales for her business and to save money to take care of her children. She invites people to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
