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


A loan helped to buy fifteen containers of liquid soap, empty boxes and products and to save up to improve her family's living conditions.


Mariam's story

Mariam is the mother of five children, three of whom attend school. She is a saleswoman who has been making and selling local soap in the capital's markets for fifteen years. She is on her sixth loan cycle with Yikri and she always repays her loans without difficulty. She sought out a new loan to buy fifteen containers of liquid soap, empty boxes and products to make soap to sell to her customers. She hopes to use the profits to reinvest in her business and save up to improve her family's living conditions. She is grateful to Kiva lenders and encourages them to protect themselves from Covid-19.
