Mariam's story

Mariam C. is forty years old and married with two children. Her husband is also a petty trader in the same market but in a different location. The couples’ businesses are too small to make enough income for all the family's needs, so Mariam would like to diversify her business by including the selling of rice, palm oil and peanut butter. She said if only she could access a loan of $175, she would improve her income. Then she and her husband would be able to purchase items from the villages for her to sell in the town. Mariam is serious about providing her two children with a good education and a better future life.
