A loan of $1,850 helps to buy drinks and foodstuffs for her restaurant so as to support her children.


Rosalie's story

Rosalie has four children, three of which are in school. She has been running a restaurant on the edge of town for 26 years. Her small restaurant runs well as it is clean and she uses all her experience in the business to make sure her customers are well looked after.

She is on her ninth loan cycle with YIKRI and she repaid her first Kiva loan without any problem. She is requesting a new loan to buy drinks and foodstuffs so as to meet the needs of her clients. She wants to use the profits as a point of reference and also save for her children.

She asks everyone to be careful with Covid-19.
