Issaka's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy 40 bags of coal and save up to take care of his family.
Issaka is a father of six children, four of whom go to school. He has been selling coal at the city market for 8 years. He is on his fourth loan with IMF YIKRI, and he is making his repayments regularly. He sought out a loan to buy 40 bags of coal to sell to his customers. He plans to use the profits to reinvest into his business and take care of his family. He invites everyone to protect themselves against the COVID-19 virus.
