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

A loan helped to buy 65 bags of red sorghum, put aside money and improve her family's living conditions.

Marie's story

Marie is the mother of two children, one of whom goes to school. She sells cereals in a market on the outskirts of the capital. She has been operating this business for seven years. She repaid her first loan from Kiva with no problem. She is requesting a new loan to buy 65 bags of red sorghum to meet demand from her customers.

She plans on using her earnings to reinvest in her business and put aside money to improve her family's living conditions. In closing she would like to thank YIKRI and it's partners for the support provided to unbanked entrepreneurs. Thanks to the loans from YIKRI she has managed to save money and take care of her family.
