A loan helped to buy 60 bags of peanuts.


Aminata's story

Aminata is the mother of 4 children, 2 of whom attend school. She has been selling food for over 13 years. She buys and stores cereals and onions, selling them locally when the time is right. She knows her business well.

She repaid her fourth Kiva-backed loan without difficulty and she is requesting a new loan to buy 60 bags of peanuts and increase her stock of merchandise . She will reinvest part of her profits in developing her business, and will save the rest so that she can take care of her children.

Finally, she would like to thank YIKRI and its partners for the support they give to non-bankable business owners.

She encourages everyone to protect themselves from the covid-19 virus.
