Zenabo's story

Zenabo is the mother of four children, two of whom attend school. She sells pagnes [traditional West African cloth] in a neighborhood market in the city. She has been engaged in this activity for eight years and this is her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI. She is requesting a loan to buy 20 quality pagnes to resell to her customers. Zenabo plans to use the resulting profits to reinvest in her business and save to improve her family's quality of life.
