Mariam is married and has five children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

Mariam has run a business from her home for four years. At the beginning, she worked as a farmer. After saving a little money from her efforts, as well as her husband's, she started a business of buying and selling goats for meat. Her husband supports her in the business.

She hopes to continue growing as a business to be able to offer a better future for her children. Mariam would like the loan to buy livestock, as the sales of the animals generates a good profit margin.
