Meet Mariam, a 39-year-old married mother of four who started selling clothes from her house two years ago to support her husband in covering their family's increasing living expenses. She used to work as an accountant, but her low income forced her to start her own business.

Still working hard to develop her enterprise properly, Mariam has requested her second loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her children's school tuition fees. A borrower in good standing, she plans to open her own clothing shop in the future so as to increase her income and improve her family's living conditions.
