A loan helped to buy traditional quality cloth wraps and to save to meet the needs of her family.


Sanata's story

Sanata is the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom are still in school. She is active in retail trade and has been selling traditional cloth wraps in the neighborhoods of the capital for more than 12 years. She is in her sixth loan cycle with MFI YIKRI and has repaid her first KIVA loan without difficulty. She is asking for a loan to buy traditional quality cloth wraps. Her goal is to source sufficient quantities to satisfy her customers. She plans to use the profits to reinvest in her business and to save to support her family. She invites everyone to protect themselves from Covid-19.
