Abdou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy 44 sacks of corn and 25 sacks of pearl millet, and to save to take care of his children.
Abdou is the father of ten children who all go to school. He has been a merchant and seller of grains at a market in the capital for more than five years. He is on his 12th loan with YIKRI and has paid back his first Kiva loan without difficulty. He is requesting a new loan to buy 44 sacks of corn and 25 sacks of pearl millet to resell to his customers. He counts on using his profits to reinvest in his business and to save to take care of his children. He encourages everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
