A loan helped to buy 120 Dutch, Ghanaian and Ivory Coast pagne dresses, and 10 plates of lye and to make savings to take care of her family.


Nina's story

Nina has one child who goes to school. She has been selling traditional pagne dresses and clothing as well as lye at a market on the outskirts of the capital for 10 years. This is her seventh loan cycle with IMF Yikri and she repays her loans correctly. She has requested a loan to buy 120 units of Dutch, Ghanaian and Ivory Coast pagnes and 10 plates of lye to increase her stock and resell to her clients. She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her commerce and to make savings to provide for her family. She suggests that everyone should protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
