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

A loan helped to buy various flavours of ice cream and also to buy drinks.

Yuky Group's story

The group Yuky is in its 23rd cycle of the women's committee programme, in which every member works and helps one another to move forwards. They are part of the Poverty Stoplight programme, fighting to improve their situations.
One of these women is Eustacia. She has an ice cream shop with a drinks stand. She says that her work has allowed her to provide her loved ones with a decent life so they are not in need. She adds that she puts everything into improving herself as she is the provider for her family.
She is asking for this loan to buy various flavours of ice cream and also to buy drinks in order to stock her business and therefore support her family.
Note: There is only one person in the photo, however this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo in order to avoid a gathering of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
