Mariam, who lives in the Changamwe, Kenya, is a water vendor. She is married. She supplies water to her neighborhoods. This idea came from the fact that water delivery in the area is a challenge. She began the business three years ago and also sells doughnuts.
A loan of KSH 83,450 will help Mariam purchase more stock to make doughnuts. Apart from the high cost of living and the reduced disposable income of many customers of such businesses, Mariam has been facing the challenge of a lack of storage tanks -- a problem she sees solved by the purchasing of these water tanks. She also intends to apply for a water meter and sell water from a tap instead of pushing a handcart.
