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


A loan helped to buy 80 pieces of lace, 5 pieces of Uniwax pagnes [traditional clothes] as well as 10 scarves, and to save to improve her family's living conditions.


Limata's story

Limata is the mother of 3 children who go to school and she takes care of 4 other persons. She has been selling clothing at a market in the capital for more than 15 years.

She is in her twelfth loan cycle at YIKRI. She is up to date with the repayments of her previous loans. She has repaid her third kiva loan. She is applying for a new loan to buy 80 pieces of lace, 5 pieces of Uniwax pagnes as well as 10 scarves to resell to her customers to make a lot of profit.

She wants to use her profits to reinvest in her business and save to improve her family's living conditions.

She thanks the Kiva lenders and invites everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
