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


A loan helped to buy 16 containers of yams to sell to her retailers and to save money to improve her family's living conditions.


Rasmata's story

Rasmata is the mother of 3 children, 1 of whom goes to school. She is a shopkeeper in an outlying area of the capital city where, for the past 10 years, she has been managing a business selling yams.

This is her eight loan with Yikri and she has paid back her second Kiva loan without any difficulty. She is asking for a new loan to buy 16 containers of yams to sell to her retailers and to satisfy her customers. She will reinvest her profits into her business and will save money to improve her family's living conditions. She thanks Yikri and its partners for the support they provide to entrepreneurs who cannot access bank funding. She invites people to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus and to respect hygiene instructions.
