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

A loan helped to buy bags of rice and vegetables and to save money to look after her children.

Habibou's story

Habibou is the mother of four children, two of whom go to school. She is a restaurateur and has been running a restaurant in a local neighbourhood for eight years.

She would like to increase her stock in other varieties of products in order to better satisfy her customers and increase her profits. For this reason, she has applied for a loan to buy bags of rice and vegetables to meet her customers' demand.

She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to deposit savings for her children. She urges everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
