Pouspoko's story

Pouspoko is the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom attend school. She is a trader and has been selling potatoes in a market on the outskirts of the capital city for 15 years. She is on her sixth loan cycle with the Yikri microfinance institution and has been reimbursing her loans on the scheduled dates with no problem. She has reimbursed her first Kiva loan.

She is requesting a new loan to buy 80, 50 kg bags of potatoes to increase her stock and sell to her customers.

She plans to use the profits to re-invest in her business and save to take care of her family.

She urges everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
