Mariam's story

Mariam is a widow who lives in the rural area of Kalisizo. She is 40 years old. She is a farmer who deals in rearing cross-breed goats. She has an additional income from catering services, which she does for local functions. She started this business in 2002 with funding from Ugafode. She works four days a week and she started this business because she needed to educate her children after the death of her husband. She has acquired this loan in order to pay school fees for her college daughter who is in her second year. The challenges she faces are limited land for grazing and long drought seasons. She describes herself as a hardworking woman and she is highly grateful for Ugafode funding because she has managed to educate her children.
