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

A loan helped to buy a large stock of traditional fabrics as well as save, improving her family's life conditions.

Tene's story

Tene has five children, four of whom are in school. She has been selling traditional colorful "pagnes" fabrics in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the capital for ten years. Tene is on her ninth loan cycle with YIKRI and repays her KIVA loans on time.

She is seeking this new loan to stock up on traditional fabrics in order to meet customer demand. Tene would like to use her revenue to reinvest and save, so as to improve her family's life conditions. She wishes everyone to stay safe from Covid-19. In conclusion, Tene again thanks YIKRI and its partners for their support of entrepreneurs who lack access to traditional banking services.
