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


A loan helped to buy a sewing machine, 28 metres of poplin, 50 metres of lace and other embellishments, to build up her savings and buy a plot of land.


Salamata's story

Salamata is 28 years old and is a seamstress. She has three children, three of whom go to school, and has one other person in her care. She opened her sewing studio seven years ago in a suburban district of the capital. This is her sixth loan cycle with IMF YKRI and she repays her loans easily.

Salamata has requested this loan to buy a sewing machine, 28 metres of poplin, 50 metres of lace and other embellishments to make attractive clothing which she can sell on to her customers. She plans on reinvesting the profits back into the business and building up her savings to buy a plot of land. She asks everyone to protect themselves against the Covid-19 virus.
