Koudpoko's story

Koudpoko is a mother of 4 children, 2 of whom are in school. She has been weaving beautiful, high-quality pagnes, a type of traditional wrap garment, for 10 years in her home on the outskirts of the capital.

Koudpoko is on her sixth loan cycle with the microfinance institution Yikri. She is requesting this loan to buy 7 bales of weaving yarn so she can weave many pagnes to meet her customers' needs. She plans to reinvest the profits in her business and save money to care for her family. Koudpoko invites everyone to protect themselves and each other from Covid-19.
