Elise's story

Elise is mother of six children, two of whom attend school. She has been a trader in a neighbourhood of the area for more than nine years already. She purchases cereals and onions, stocks them, and resells them when the time is right. She has good knowledge of her business.

Elise is on her sixth loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repaid her first Kiva loan without difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to purchase 60 bags of onions to increase her stock of merchandise. She will reinvest part of the profits in growing her business and save to take care of her children.

She invites everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
