Mariamu is a 45-year-old mother of four children who is married to Nassoro, a businessman.
She is a hardworking woman and a fighter. For over ten years, she has been engaged in the sale of fruits and vegetables from her stall that is outside her house. Mariamu learned this business from her mother long before she was even married. This is all thanks to her mother, who taught her to earn a decent living.
She gets her merchandise from the municipal market. Mariamu is requesting a loan from Yehu to buy bananas, potatoes, kale, passionfruit, and other fruits and vegetables. She is seeing that her business is profitable and the revenue helps cover expenses for her household and her children.
She is thinking about making improvements to her home to have a better quality of life for her family, and so that her children have the opportunity to continue their studies and have a better future.
