Mariam lives in Msambweni. She is divorced and has one child who is a grown-up. She is the owner of a well-stocked coconut store which she has had for over twenty years. Thanks to this business and the work of the entire family, they have been able to grow considerably and are continuing to grow. They want to be able to expand their shop until they have a large supermarket where they offer comfort to their customers.
Mariam is seeking this loan for the purchase of sacks of coconuts in order to be able to keep providing a good variety to her customers since that is what draws them the most.
