Mariam's story

Mariam has 6 children, 4 who are in school, and has been selling grains in a market for 18 years.

She's on her second loan with Yikri, and she is requesting this loan to buy 2 bags of corn and 10 bags of pearl millet to increase her sales and her profits.

She plans to reinvest the profits in her business and save to care for her family.
