Mariam is a 33-year-old married woman and mother of four children. She has been working in cultivation for three years now, planting and selling a variety of vegetables, mainly tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini. Though Mariam suffered in the beginning due to lack of experience, she succeeded in learning the business and creating a position for herself in the market.

To improve and expand her production, Mariam is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua. She will invest the money in buying a nylon cover for her agricultural tent, a modest version of the greenhouse model. Accordingly, she will be able to plant vegetables all year long, thus generating stable revenues.
