Mariam's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy 120 packs of Youki juice, 50 Frotto juices, and 50 packets of Planet drinks and to save for the financial well-being of her family.


Mariam's story

Mariam is 42 years old and mother of three children. The oldest is 26 and the youngest is 10, each child goes to school, and she has five dependants.

She has been selling drinks and juices for more than 12 years and gets her supplies in a market in the city. With the money, she plans to buy 120 packets of Youki juice, 50 Frotto juices, and 50 packets of Planet drinks to resell to her customers.

She plans to use the profits to reinvest in the business to become a known sales point for pagnes [traditional decorated fabrics] and to save for the financial well-being of her family.
