Miriam lives in Msambweni with her husband and school-age children.

Miriam has a sewing workshop in her home. She takes on jobs from her customers who are located in the market district. Her husband helps her in the business. She says that she previously used to sell hens in the market and her husband had been employed but when the sewing business gradually took off, she started working at it full time.

Miriam is requesting this loan to invest in her sewing workshop. She will buy fabric, threads, buttons and other supplies so that she can continue growing and improving her family's quality of life.
