Mariam is married and they live at their own house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for the family.

She has operated a khanga (women's wrap cloth) selling business, selling from home and door-to-door to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of lack of capital to expand her business and get a variety of khangas for sale.

With the loan she is requesting, she wants to purchase bales of khangas for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
