Fatoumata's story

Fatoumata is the mother of three children who go to school. She sells palm oil in a capital market. She has been in this business for eight years.

Fatoumata is in her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI and is requesting a loan to buy 15 cans of palm oil to meet the needs of her customers. She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her business and save to take care of her children.

She invites everyone to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
