Time is married with four children who attend school. She owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.
She has operated a retail boutique shop for the past three years, selling from home to her neighbours and town dwellers. In addition she also operates a food vending business which contributes to her income. Her greatest challenge is seasonality. During the months of January to May, only a low number of customers turn up compared to holiday season where the demand is high. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
