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

A loan helped this borrower to buy 70 pagne units of first and second grades.

Mariam's story

Mariam is a 40-year-old mother to three children, two of whom go to school. She has been selling pagnes in a local district for over a year. This is her 6th loan cycle with YIKRI. She makes repayments without difficulty.

She is seeking a new loan to buy 70 pagne units of first and second grades to meet customer satisfaction.

She plans to reinvest her profits in her activity and to build up her savings in order to improve her family's living conditions.

Mariam wishes to thank YIKRI and its partners for giving their support to non-bankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to loans obtained through YIKRI, she is able to save money in an effort to provide for her family's well-being.
