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


A loan helped to buy 250 bags of charcoal and build up savings to take care of personal expenses and support her family.


Mariam's story

Mariam is the mother of 5 children, 3 of whom go to school. She has been a trader and has been selling wholesale sacks of charcoal at a market in the capital for 20 years. This is her seventh loan cycle with MFI YIKRI and she has repaid all her loans without difficulty.

Mariam is requesting a new loan to buy 250 bags of charcoal to meet the demand of her customers in these cooler times. She will reinvest part of the profits in her business and save the rest to take care of personal expenses and support her family.

She invites everyone to respect barrier gestures to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
