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


A loan helped to buy two truckloads of timber and eight canisters of palm oil, to build up savings to provide for her family.


Salamata's story

Salamata has five children, one of whom still goes to school. She is a saleswoman and has been running her timber business for more than 20 years, to which she has added palm oil sales.

This is her fifth loan cycle with IMF YIKRI and she reimbursed her first KIVA loan without fault. She is seeking another loan to buy two truckloads of timber and eight canisters of palm oil to satisfy customer demand.

She would like to reinvest profits back into her business and build up savings to provide for her family. Lastly, she would like to express her gratitude to YIKRI and their partners for the support they offer to non-bankable entrepreneurs.
