Mariam is a 44-year-old married woman who has been selling children's shoes and clothes for 20 years. In 2012, she started her own business in her home and she expects a good number of customers on daily basis.

Mariam decided to develop and expand her business. That's why she applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to start selling women's clothes to expand her business for additional income.

She is very anxious to obtain this loan because she believes that she has the necessary talent to create the need to her products among her customers.

She hopes that one day she'll be capable of opening her own clothing shop outside her house in the future.
