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

A loan helped to buy more materials, such as string, to help her in making more doormats and, also, to pay for her other costs, such as transporting the items to the market.

Miriam's story

Miriam, 29, is blessed with three children, who are aged 10, 8, and 6 years old. She is not yet married and looks forward to it as she continues to support not only her children, but, also, her elderly parents and younger siblings.

Miriam manages all this through her business making doormats. Her doormats have beautiful designs that appeal to customers. She loves her business, because it not only enables her to make a living, but also promotes local tailoring shops who supply her with the necessary materials she needs.

To boost her business, Miriam is kindly requesting a loan that will enable her to transport her products to a large customer base. She plans to pay her loan using the profits she makes from her business and to continue taking care of her family.

Miriam will also use her profits to help her achieve her dream of owning a large shop where she can make and sells mats from, as well as pass on the skills to others through offering training.
