Mariam
Mariam was born around 1963 in Bamako and lives with her six children and husband in a monogamous family in the Kangare district of the town of Selingue. She is a nurse by trade and also has several income-generating activities, notably the purchase and sale of clothing, ginger, incense and soaps. Having repaid in full her previous loans, Mariam is now on her fifth loan with Soro Yiriwaso, which will be used to buy eight sacks of ginger, five dozen sets of clothing, three cartons of soap, all from wholesalers. She sells for cash and on credit, on a retail basis, from home and in the market at Dalabala to a customer base made up of men and women.

Mariam hopes to make a monthly profit of 75,000FCFA which will be used to help her husband provide for the family's needs, repay her loan and reinvest in her activities.
