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


A loan helped to buy a freezer and ten bags of sachets to make ice and save up to improve her family's living conditions.


Ramatou's story

Ramatou is the mother of six children, five of whom attend school. She is a merchant and has been making ice in her home in one of the capital's neighbourhoods for more than ten years. She is on her seventh loan cycle with the microfinance institution Yikri and she repaid her first Kiva loan without difficulty.

She has asked for another loan to buy a freezer and ten bags of sachets to make ice and resell to clients during the end-of-year holiday season. She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her business and save up to improve her family's living conditions. She encourages everyone to protect themselves from Covid-19.
