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

A loan helped to buy 35 bags of peanuts and 12 bags of beans.

Aguera's story

Aguera is a mother of four children, two of whom go to school. For more than 13 years, she has been a merchant in a neighborhood on the city outskirts where she buys, stores, and resells grains at the opportune time.

She is in her seventh loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repaid her first Kiva loan without any difficulties. She is requesting a new loan to buy 35 bags of peanuts and 12 bags of beans to increase her stock of goods. She plans to expand and reinvest in her business, set aside savings, and take care of her children.

Finally, she always thanks YIKRI and its partners for their support for entrepreneurs without access to traditional banking facilities. She urges everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
