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

A loan helped to buy memory cards, USB flash drives, and TECNO cellphones, and to save take care of his children.

Saidou's story

Saidou is the father of three children, two of whom go to school. He is a merchant and opened a telecom store in an area on the outskirts of the capital. He has run this business for more than 10 years and has experience in the field of selling phone accessories.

He is on his sixth loan with the Yikri microfinance institution and has paid back his second Kiva loan without difficulty.

He is requesting a new loan to buy memory cards, USB flash drives, and TECNO phones, with the plan of satisfying his customer demand. He hopes to use his profits to reinvest in his business and to save to take care of his children.

He encourages everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
