A loan helped to buy 56 case of beer and 35 cases of soft drinks to satisfy customer orders.

Georgette's story

Georgette is a widow and the mother of two children, and she has two other persons to support. For over sixteen years, she has been a merchant in a local neighborhood, where she opened a bar while selling 'pagnes' cloth there too.

She is on her 7th loan cycle at YIKRI and has paid back her 2nd Kiva loan without a problem. She is again asking for a loan to purchase 56 cases of beer (SOBBRA, GUINNESS, BEAUFORT) and 35 case of soft drinks (FANTA, COCA COLA) to satisfy customer orders.

She will reinvest part of her earnings in her business and set aside some as savings for the success of her family. So, she thanks YIKRI and its partners for supporting unbanked entrepreneurs. Thanks to YIKRI loans, she is managing to save money to care for her family.
