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

A loan helped to buy some quality pagnes [colorful cloths popular in west Africa] and put aside some savings to take care of her children.

Safoura's story

Safoura is the mother of 4 children, 2 of whom are in school. She has been a sidewalk vendor of embroidered pagnes at the marketplace in the capital for 8 years. She is on her third loan with IMF YIKRI and she has been repaying the loans as agreed.

Safoura has requested a loan to buy quality pagnes to embroider and satisfy the requests of her customers. She plans to reinvest the profits in her business, strengthen her inventory, and put aside some money to take care of her children. She urges everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
