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


A loan helped to purchase 15 balls of woven thread to knit clothing and to save money to improve her family's conditions.


Haminata's story

Haminata is a mother of 4 children, 2 of whom go to school. She is a knitter. She has been knitting quality pagnes [traditional cloth wraps] from her home in a neighboring capital suburb for 8 years.

She is on her sixth loan cycle with the MFI, YIKRI, and she is asking for a new loan to purchase 15 balls of woven thread to knit clothing to satisfy her customers' requests.

She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her business and to save money to improve her family's conditions.

She encourages everyone to protect themselves against Covid-19.
