A loan helped to buy quality children's clothes and to save to take care of her children.


Korotimi's story

Korotimi is the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom go to school. She has been a trader in children's clothes in a market on the outskirts of the capital for 12 years. She is in her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI and has paid off her first Kiva loan. She is applying for a new loan to buy quality children's clothes in order to meet the demand of her customers. She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save to take care of her children. She thanks the Kiva lenders and invites everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Caitlin LeClair.
