Mamounata's story

Mamounata is the mother of 6 children, three of whom go to school. She has been a trader in a neighborhood of the town for more than 10 years already. She buys cereals and onions and then re-sells the stocks at the right time. She knows her business well. She is on her sixth loan cycle with Yikri and has reimbursed her second Kiva loan with no difficulty.

She is requesting a new loan to buy 70 bags of shea nuts to increase her stock of merchandise. She will re-invest part in her business to grow it and save to take care of her children.

Finally, she continues to thank Yikri and its partners for the support they bring to non bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to the loans from Yikri she is able to take care of her children.
