Viviane's story

Viviane is a mother of two children. She is a seamstress and opened a sewing workshop five years ago in an outlying neighborhood of the capital city. This is her fifth loan cycle with the microfinance institution Yikri and she pays her loans back on time. She has requested a loan to buy two sewing machines, fabric and pagne cloth with which to make pretty clothes, which she sells to her customers during this time of preparations for the end-of-year holidays. She intends to reinvest the profits in her business and to set money aside to care for her children. She urges everyone to protect themselves from the covid-19 virus.
