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

A loan helped to buy 56 bags of peanuts and to save to take care of her children.

Aminata's story

Aminata is a mother of four children, two of whom attend school. She has been a merchant in her district for more than 13 years. She buys cereals and onions, stocks them, and resells them at a more opportune time. She has good knowledge of her business.

Aminata is on her seventh loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repaid her third Kiva loan without difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to purchase 56 bags of peanuts to increase her stock of merchandise. She will reinvest part of the profits into her business to expand it and save to take care of her children.

Finally, she would like to thank YIKRI and its partners for their support of non-bankable entrepreneurs. She invites everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
