A loan helped to purchase 70 bags of onions and to save to take care of her children.


Elise's story

Elise is a mother of 6 children, two of whom go to school.

She has been a saleswomen in a district for more than 9 years already where she buys her stock of cereals and onions to resell at the right time. She has a good understanding of her business.

She is on her seventh loan cycle with Yikri, and she repaid her second loan with Kiva without any problems. She is asking for a new loan to purchase 70 bags of onions to increase her stock of goods.

She will reinvest some of it in her business to expand it and to save to take care of her children.

She encourages everyone to protect themselves against Covid-19.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Kayla Sanger.
