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


A loan helped to buy 15 sacks of rice, 5 sacks of beans, 10 oil canisters, and condiments, and save money to pay for her children's education.


Salamata's story

Salamata is a mother of 5 older children including four who go to school. She has been a restaurateur in a neighbourhood near the capital for 10 years. This is Salamata's sixth loan cycle with the microfinance institute Yikri. She has repaid her first Kiva loan with no issues.

Salamata is requesting a new loan to buy 15 sacks of rice, 5 sacks of beans, 10 oil canisters, and cooking condiments in order to satisfy her customers.

She expects to reinvest the profits back into her business and save money to pay for her children's education. Salamata invites everyone to protect themselves from the Covid 19 virus.
