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

A loan helped to build a space where to adequately store and sell fresh fish, as well as to raise poultry.

Salimata's story

Salimata, age 45, is the mother of seven children, including four who go to school. She sells fresh fish in her neighborhood's little market. To better provide for her family's needs and increase her monthly revenue, she decided to diversify her business. Thus, she raises poultry.

Know under the nickname of Saly, Salimata is a brave and visionary woman who always cares about her children's education. She wants to become an influential fresh fish reseller and a big broiler chicken farmer in her locality.

With this Kiva loan from Fansoto, she would really like to build a place to adequately store and sell her fish and conduct her poultry business.
