This month, we are highlighting Samalie.
Samalie has just received her fourth loan from Umama. Through Umama, she was able to open a store where she sells beans, sugar, and other necessities – a much more stable income than her previous business as a curtain vendor. Recently, we spoke with Samalie and she could not stop saying how grateful she was for Umama because, apart from providing loans, Umama offered her the knowledge to run a business. She loves the program so much, she hopes her daughter will be able to join!
