Mariam's story

Mariam is a mother of four children, three of whom go to school. She is holding her youngest in her arms in the photo. She has been a walking shoe saleswoman in an area on the outskirts of the capital for nine years. She is on her second loan with the Yikri microfinance institution and has paid back her first loan without difficulty. She is requesting a loan to buy 50 pairs of shoes of varying qualities so she can satisfy her customer demand. She counts on using her profits to reinvest in her business and to save to ensure her family's wellbeing.
