Chizi is married and is the mother of six children, three of whom attend school and the other three are adults. She operated a food stand in front of the local school. Chizi's biggest customers are students and teachers. Once in a while she travels to Mombasa to bring back merchandise because she still gets orders. Chizi is requesting the loan to purchase bread products, meat, oils, vegetables, and other ingredients to make the meals she serves at the stand.
