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

A loan helped to buy 80 spice packets which will help her save for her children.

Francine's story

Francine is the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom attend school. She is a merchant and has been selling spices in an peripheral district of the capital for over 3 years. This is her 6th loan cycle with the MFI YIKRI and she repaid her first Kiva-backed loan without difficulty.

She is requesting a new loan to buy 80 packets of spices so that she can satisfy her customer demand.

She plans to reinvest part of her profits in her business, to use part of it to strengthen her stock, and to save the rest so that she can take care of her children.

She encourages everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
