Yikri was launched by Entrepreneurs du Monde in Burkina Faso to offer social microfinance to the most vulnerable entrepreneurs in Burkina Faso after several years of experience serving the energy sector through distribution of cleaner and more efficient lighting and cooking products. Yikri initially focused on peri-urban areas of the country before launching a rural initiative in 2018 targeting subsistence farmers with tailored loans suitable to farming activities and a new suite of trainings tailored for farm activities. Yikri offers their clients the chance to save with them and has a team of social workers on staff to help those clients facing acute social problems.
