Mariam is married and has three children, two of whom attend school. Her partner is a plumber. The two of them help each other with the household chores as they are both responsible for supporting their family.
Mariam worked tremendously hard to set up her own business (a grocery shop) in her home. Mariam has a large and varied clientele because she offers very good service and sells plastic items, sweets and many other things. The loan she is applying for will be used to stock her shop with basic necessities, such as foodstuffs and soft drinks amongst other things, and will enable her to continue with what she has been doing so far.
