Support Marriam's Cosmetics: Empowering Refugee Entrepreneurs

Introducing Marriam's Cosmetics, a venture pioneered by Marriam Scovia, offering a diverse range of unisex lotions. Nestled within the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, Zone 1, Village 8, Marriam's Cosmetics strives to be a beacon of elegance and accessibility in the community.

This is her story: 

"Hi, my name is Marriam Scovia, and I'm the proud owner of Marriam's Cosmetics. Let me share with you the journey of my business and the dreams I hold close to my heart. My vision for Marriam's Cosmetics is ambitious: I dream of creating a royal model of quality and variety within our settlement, where everyone can find the perfect lotion to suit their needs. With your support, I believe we can turn this vision into reality. Every day, I wake up with a mission in mind – to not only run a successful business but also to support my family and community in meaningful ways. Through Marriam's Cosmetics, I aim to provide essential items to those in need. The profits from my business will also help me personally in covering hospital bills for family members during times of hardship. And of course, generating income for my family is a priority, ensuring a better future for all of us. I started my business because I noticed a gap in the market within our location – a lack of a dedicated cosmetics shop. By seizing this opportunity, I hope to not only fulfill the needs of our community but also contribute to its economic growth and self-sufficiency. But I can't do this alone. I need your help to take Marriam's Cosmetics to new heights. With your support, I can expand my offerings, purchase additional cosmetics and bathing soaps, and afford transportation to make my products more accessible to everyone in the settlement. So please, join me on this journey of empowerment and transformation. Together, we can make Marriam's Cosmetics not just a shop, but a symbol of resilience, hope, and possibility within our community. Thank you for believing in me and supporting my dreams."
