Mwenda, a married woman with six children, all of whom graduated from school, lives with her family in a rental house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and rent bills. Mwenda operates a food-vending business, selling at the market and from door to door. The major challenge she faces is theft due to a lack of security in her area of operation.
