A loan helped to buy 5 bags of rice, 2 cartons of Nescafe, 1 carton of Lipton, 12 types of sweets, and various cosmetic products.


Mariam's story

Mariam is 40 years old and the mother of 4 children. She is a vendor and has opened a kiosk, where she has a partnership with a store to sell cosmetic products in a neighborhood on the periphery of the capital. Mariam has eight years of experience in her practice.

This is Mariam's fourth loan cycle with Yikri. She plans to use the funds from the loan to purchase 5 bags of rice, 2 cartons of Nescafe, 1 carton of Lipton, 12 types of sweets, and cosmetic products to satisfy customer demand.

Mariam hopes to use her revenue to reinvest in her business and to increase her savings, so that she can improve her family's living conditions.
