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

A loan helped to buy lengths of 'pagne' cloth of various makes (Vilsco, Wax, HiTarget).

Oumamatou's story

OUMAMATOU is the mother of three children all in school. For two years, she has been a street vendor of 'pagnes' [colorful wax cloth of western Africa] and of clothing in a neighborhood in the capital.

She is now on her 4th loan cycle with the microfinance institution YIKRI. She does well paying back her loans, thanks to her commerce. She has inquired about the current loan to purchase 10 Vilsco pagne, 40 Wax pagne, and 20 HiTarget pagne of different grades in order to satisfy customer demands.

She plans to reinvest the earnings in her business and to save money for her family’s well-being.
