Hardworking mother of four, Mariam Namayingo lives in Uganda with her husband, Kasaga, and their four children. For several years, Mariam has owned and operated a poultry business, selling chicken to her neighbors and community members. Each morning, she wakes up early to tend to her chickens and prepare her shop for the day. Despite her hard work, it hasn’t always been easy for Mariam – in fact, there was a time she worried she would not be able to keep her children in school or provide for their daily needs. Everything began to change when Mariam joined Opportunity International. Mariam received financial training and a loan to purchase chicken feed in bulk, along with medicine to treat them when they’re ill. This led to healthier chickens, so Mariam could sell more to her customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Mariam will be able to save up and ensure her children receive the best education possible.
