Mariama is 54 years old, married, and the mother of five children. She is a hair stylist and has 30 years' experience.

She needs a loan to buy hair extensions and beauty products to sell to her customers in her salon.

Her salon is busy and well-located. Mariama is known for her experience and she is respectful and welcoming to her customers. More than that, she is a talented hair stylist and only offers her customers the best quality. This is why her business does well.

After her sales and service, she will have a profit that will allow her to save and take care of her family, as well as continue her business.
