Zindzy has been operating her open air food stall for one year. She is married to a businessman, and has three children: two boys and a girl and they all attend school. With the Kshs 40,000, she wants to buy a sack of beans, cooking oil, Irish potatoes and baking flour.
Zindzy sells from home to her neighbors and passersby, citing competition as her major challenge in the business. She hopes to run a big restaurant in future. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees, electricity and food. Zindzy decided to work with Yehu to get a loan and improve her living standards. She owns a house with electricity but no piped water.
