A loan helped to buy fabrics and pagnes to sew pretty clothes and to save to take care of her children.


Porbi's story

Porbi is mother of three children who attend school. She is a seamstress in a market in the capital. She has been in this business for eight years.

Porbi is on her sixth loan cycle with YIKRI, and she repays her loans well. She is requesting a loan to purchase fabrics and pagnes [traditional cloth wraps] to sew pretty clothes to meet customer demand.

She plans to use her profits in her business and to save to take care of her children.
