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

A loan helped to buy pagnes and shoes for sale, so as to look after her children.

Roukiata's story

Roukiata has five children, of which two are in school. She is an itinerant seller of pagnes and shoes, in an outer area of the capital city. She has been doing this for ten years. This is her sixth loan from Yikri and she has repaid them without any problem.

She is requesting a loan to buy pagnes and shoes, so as to increase her choices for her customers. She expects to use the profits as reinvestment in her business and save for the well being of her children. She asks everyone to be protected against Covid-19.
