A loan helped to buy 2 bags of corn and 10 bags of pearl millet and to save to care for her family.


Mariam's story

Mariam has 6 children, 4 who are in school, and has been selling grains in a market for 18 years.

She's on her second loan with Yikri, and she is requesting this loan to buy 2 bags of corn and 10 bags of pearl millet to increase her sales and her profits.

She plans to reinvest the profits in her business and save to care for her family.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Samantha Sullivan.
