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


A loan helped a borrower to buy 20 boxes of mangoes and 5 packs of sachets to make dried mangoes—and to save to improve her family's living conditions.


Sylvie Natikra's story

Sylvie Natikra is the mother of 3 children who go to school. She is a retail trader who has been making and selling dried mangoes for grocery stores for seven years.

This is her eighth loan cycle with Ykiri and she repaid her first Kiva loan. She is asking for a new loan to buy 20 boxes of mangoes and 5 packs of sachets to make dried mangoes. This will help her meet her clients' demand.

She wants to reinvest her income in her business and save to improve her family's living conditions. She thanks Kiva's lenders and is asking everyone to protect themselves from COVID-19.
