A loan helped to buy 75 bags of charcoal to improve her family's living conditions.


Zourata's story

Zourata is a mother of four children, three of whom attend school. She has been a charcoal seller for twelve years in a neighborhood of the capital city. She is on her fifth loan cycle with YIKRI and always pays back her loans. She has requested a new loan to buy 75 bags of charcoal in order to meet the demand of her clients. She would like to use her earnings to reinvest in her business and to save in order to improve her family's living conditions. She encourages everyone to protect themselves from Covid-19.
