A loan helped to buy 20 skirts, 60 yards of Nasabamoussa fabric, 20 pairs of shoes and other good-quality fabric and save to prepare for the future of her children.


Christine's story

Christine is a mother of 4 children, 3 of whom go to school, and she also has caregiver responsibilities for another member of the family. She is a trader and has been selling quality clothes and shoes at a market on the outskirts of the capital for 8 years.

This is her seventh loan cycle with MFI YIKRI and she repays her loans without any difficulty. She is requesting a new loan to buy 20 skirts, 60 yards of Nasabamoussa fabric, 20 pairs of shoes and other good-quality fabric to meet the demand of her customers during this time of year. With the profits, Christine will reinvest in her business, strengthen her stock and save to prepare for the future of her children.

She invites everyone to respect barrier gestures to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
