Mariam is a 37-year-old divorced mother of three children who live with her; two attend school. After divorcing her husband, Mariam started up a small grocery business as a source of income in order to look after her family and pay the children's tuition.

Mariam is requesting a loan of 400,000 shillings to buy more groceries for her business. Her dream is to expand it so that she can better care for her family and complete her residential house. Because she is faced with the challenge of limited capital, Mariam hopes lenders will give her a hand.
