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

A loan helped to buy pagnes, rolls of weaving thread, and dye.

Salimata's story

Salimata is the mother of 6 children, 5 of whom attend school. She is a weaver and has been selling high-quality modern and traditional pagnes (colourful and decorative West African cloth) from her home in a suburb of the capital for 15 years.

This is her 5th loan cycle with YIKRI and she is requesting a new loan to buy pagnes, as well as rolls of weaving thread and dye so that she can make traditional pagnes and satisfy her customer demand.

She plans to reinvest some of her profits in her business and to save the rest so that she can improve her family's living conditions.

She invites everyone to respect the Covid-19 safety regulations and protect themselves from the virus.
