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

A loan helped to buy 8 bundles of second-hand linen, and save money to take care of her family.

Habibou's story

Habibou is a mother of five children — including three who go to school. She has been selling second-hand linen for more than 12 years in a neighbouring district of the capital.

This is Habibou's seventh loan cycle with the microfinance institute Yikri, and she has repaid her first Kiva loan on time without any issues. She is requesting another loan to buy 8 bundles of linen to increase her stock, and resell to her clients.

Habibou expects to reinvest the profits back into her business, and save money to take care of her family. She invites everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
