A loan helped to buy 20 crates of Beaufort beer, and 50 crates of Fanta and Coca Cola, so she can save money and provide for her children.


Rabiatou's story

Rabiatou has four children who go to school. She is a retailer and opened a “maquis” (an informal eatery) in the suburb of the capital where she has been selling drinks for 6 years. This is her 5th loan cycle with MFI Yikri. She is requesting this loan to buy 20 crates of Beaufort beer and 50 crates of Fanta and Coca Cola so she can meet the demand from her customers.

She will use the profits to invest in her business and to build up her inventory, so she can save money and provide for her children. She urges everybody to protect themselves from COVID-19.
