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


A loan helped to buy 40 sacks of rice (super and regular), 10 boxes of Maggi cubes, 20 sacks of cans of oil, and 15 sacks of wheat flour, and to save to look after his family.


Bassirou's story

Bassirou is father of three children who all go to school. He has a shop selling various items in a neighbourhood on the outskirts of the capital, which he's been running for over 10 years. He is on his sixth loan cycle with YIKRI and he has repaid his first Kiva loan.

He is requesting a new loan to buy 40 sacks of rice (super and ordinary), 10 boxes of Maggi cubes, 20 sacks of cans of oil, and 15 sacks of wheat flour to restock his shop and satisfy his customers. With the profits, he plans to reinvest in his business and to save to take care of his family.
