Mariama's story

Meet Mariama, a 48-year-old woman from Masuba branch. She is a widow with three children between the ages of 26 and 32 years old. She also adopted two of her relatives.

Mariama runs a drinks business and sells different kinds of drinks and water to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for the past 10 years now and works 11 hours per day and 6 days a week. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes.

Mariama requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more drinks and water, which will increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will improve their standard of living. In the future she wants her business to expand into a big shop.

She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
