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

A loan helped to buy 200 sacks of charcoal and to put aside money to take care of his family.

Moussa's story

Moussa is the father of 5 children who are in school. He is a trader who has been operating a charcoal sales business for over 10 years in an area near the capital. He is on his ninth loan cycle with YIKRI and makes his payments on time.

Moussa has requested a loan to purchase 200 sacks of charcoal to resell to his customers during this rainy season. He plans to reinvest the profits in his business and put some of it aside to take care of his family.
