Mariam is a repeat client who has taken several loans of 1,500,000, 2,000,000 and now wants UGX 3,000,000. She began the business in 2005 because there was less competition for the business. However, more people have come into the business and stiff competition has become high on her challenges list.
Mariam will use this loan to buy construction items in the form of cement and sand to do finishing for her residential house, so that it can be habitable and she will be able to cut her rent costs. She is a very hardworking and assertive woman.
