Madeleine's story

Madeleine is the mother of two children who go to school. She is a shopkeeper and has been selling shoes at a market in the capital for six years. She is on her sixth loan cycle with the IMF YIKRI and she is up to date with her credit repayments. She is asking for a loan to buy 200 pairs of quality shoes to satisfy her customers and to make a lot of profit. She hopes to use her profits to expand her business and to save to meet the needs of her children. She encourages everyone to respect the protective measures to fight against the COVID-19 virus.
