A loan helped to buy 45 cartons of smoked fish and to save up to take care of her children.


Abzeta's story

Abzeta is the mother of 4 children, 2 of whom go to school. She is a street vendor. She sells smoked fish in a market in the capital and in the surrounding neighborhoods. She has been managing this business for more than 12 years.

She repaid her second Kiva loan without difficulties. She is requesting a new loan to buy 45 cartons of smoked fish to satisfy the demand of her customers. She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save up to take care of her children.

Finally, she thanks YIKRI and its partners for the support they bring to unbanked entrepreneurs. She invites everyone to protect themselves from Covid-19.
