A loan helped to buy another refrigerator, a freezer motor, and 4 bags of sachets, and to save up to improve her family's living conditions.


Ramatou's story

Ramatou is a mother of six, five of whom attend school. She has been selling ice cream products on her avenue in a neighborhood in the capital for 10 years. She is on her sixth loan cycle with IMF YIKRI, and she is repaying her loans well on the due dates without difficulty. She is seeking a loan to buy another refrigerator, a freezer motor, and 4 bags of sachets in order to make ice cream and sell it to her customers. She plans to use the profits to reinvest into her business and save up to improve her family's living conditions.
