A loan helped buy 15 bags of peanuts and thereby save to improve her family's living conditions.


Salamata's story

Salamata is the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom go to school.

She is a trader, she speculates: she buys grain and stocks and resells them in a market in the capital and in surrounding markets at the right time. She has been doing this for 10 years.

She is in her fourth credit cycle with MFI YIKRI and she is repaying well.

She is now requesting a loan to buy 15 bags of peanuts to store and then resell to her customers.

She plans to reinvest her profit in her business and also to save to improve the living conditions of her family.
