Mariam's story

Mariam lives in Ijevan town. She is married with a 5-years-old daughter. Together with her husband, Mariam has been involved in a retail business. With the truck that her husband owns, Mariam organizes the retail business. She trades with vegetables and fruits, which she sells in the open market. Mariam and her husband work really hard to be able to sustain their young family. Currently, because of the hard financial times that family is facing, Mariam needs support. She asks for this loan to be able to renovate the truck by which they organize the retail business, and purchase vegetables to be able to increase sales. Mariam has been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products. Mariam will be very grateful to all lenders for supporting her with the business.
