Mariamu, 28, is married and has three children. She lives with her family in a village in the south coast of Kenya.
Mariamu has devoted herself to business for three years. She operates a kiosk, selling a variety of consumer goods. In addition, she sells coconuts from her home. During her free time, Mariam does farming in her small garden located behind her residential house.
She says that she got her working capital from her husband. She is currently requesting a loan from Yehu for 25,000 KES. She will use the loan to buy coconuts to sell and add more stock to her kiosk. This loan will help her increase production, and with the income, she will be able to give her family a better life. Thanks for her efforts.
