Fati's story

Fati is a married mother of three, two of whom go to school. She is a restaurateur and opened a restaurant in a neighborhood close to the capital that she has managed for more than 9 years. Her small restaurant functions thanks to the hygiene she applies, her experience in this domain, and the clientele she has acquired over time. She is on her third loan with YIKRI. She is making her repayments, and she has repaid her first KIVA loan without difficulty. She is seeking a new loan to buy 5 sacks of beans, 3 sacks of rice, and 2 containers of oil with the view of stocking up for her food business in order to satisfy the demand of her customers. She wishes to use these profits from her restaurant and save up to improve her family’s living conditions. In the end, she thanks YIKRI and its partners for the support they give nonbankable entrepreneurs. Thanks to the YIKRI loans, she is able to improve her family’s living conditions.
