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


A loan helped to buy 3 boxes of tomato paste, 4 bags of onions, and other condiments, and to save to improve her family's living conditions.


Salamata's story

Salamata is mother of three children, one of whom attends school. She is a trader, and she has been selling condiments in a market in the capital for more than three years.

She is on her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repaid her first Kiva loan without difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to purchase three boxes of tomato paste, four bags of onions, and other condiments to resell to her customers. She hopes to use the profits to reinvest in her business and to save to improve her family's living conditions.

She thanks Kiva lenders and invites them to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
