Sayouba's story

Sayouba is married and is the father of three children. He is a traveling salesman and opened a shop at the local marketplace where he has been selling school bags and suitcases for 12 years. This is his seventh loan cycle with the micro-lending institution YIKRI.

Sayouba is requesting a new loan to buy 30 suitcases, 40 school backpacks, and 34 travel bags, as well as bags to protect his items. He hopes that these purchases will satisfy the needs of his customers. He plans to use the profits of his sales to reinvest in his business and save to take care of his family.
