A loan helped to buy 10 bags of peanuts and save to take care of her children.


Sahoudata's story

Sahoudata is the mother of 3 children, 1 of whom attends school. She is a saleswoman involved in speculation--she buys and stocks cereals and sells them at a market in the capital and at nearby markets at an opportune time to make a profit. She has been involved in this activity for 6 years.

This is her third loan cycle with the micro-lending institution YIKRI, and she has repaid her previous loans on time. She is requesting this loan to buy 10 bags of peanuts to stock and resell to her customers. She plans to use the profits in her business, as well as to grow her savings to look after her children.
