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

A loan helped to buy 20 bags of Kakorou soap and salt to save for her family.

Maimouna's story

Maimouna is the mother of three children and looks after one other person. She is a businesswoman and sells dish washing liquid and soap in the market on the edge of the capital city. This is her sixth loan with YIKRI and she has repaid her previous Kiva loan on schedule.

She is requesting a new loan to buy 20 bags of liquid detergent, soap and salt in order to manufacture her own liquid soap to meet her customers' demands.

From the profits, she will reinvest in her business, increase her stock and save for the needs of her family. She ask everyone to protect themselves from Covid-19.
