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

A loan helped to buy 10 sacks of germinated millet, firewood, and various grocery items for her store.

Pascaline's story

Pascaline is the mother of eight children of whom three are still in school. And she has three other persons to support. For over 24 years, she has been a dolotière (a producer of a local beer) and a shopkeeper in an outlying district of the capital.

Now on her 4th loan cycle at the microfinance institution YIKRI, she is asking for a loan to buy 10 sacks of germinated millet and some firewood in order to make the local beer; and various shop goods to satisfy her customer base.

She plans to use her earnings to reinvest in her work and to save money for covering her family’s food and healthcare expenses.
