A loan of $2,850 helped to open a toy shop.


Mariam's story

This is Mariam's second Kiva loan. With the first loan amount, she purchased calves and expanded her agribusiness. Mariam is still working hard on family owned agricultural land, harvesting products and using them for local trading. Her family has enlarged, so now Mariam has two grandsons and it is clear the family needs have increased.

With the newly requested money she plans to start a trading business, particularly to open a toy shop in a rented place. Mariam will purchase products in the capital where a wider market is located and will then sell the products at increased prices in her region. She is a very enthusiastic and hardworking person with a great desire to ensure a better lifestyle for her family. This credit will be a great support for her. Mariam is very thankful to Kiva lenders for giving her a chance to develop her businesses.
