This is 34 year-old Mariama. She is married and has four children. In 2005, Mariama established her grocery. She began her business because she wants to fight poverty and to help her husband in providing a livelihood for the family. Mariama opens her business every day except on Sundays. Mariama has a good loan repayment history. She needs a loan of 4,000,000 Sierra Leonean leones (SLL). Mariama requires a loan in order to buy more foodstuffs. She thanks you for your support.
