Riziki is a resident of Malindi, Kenya. She is married and sells water to the residents living around her. Riziki began the business from her own savings through applying for a distribution meter. The area faces perennial water shortages and relies on people like her for clean/portable water. She is the mother of three children, all of whom are in school. She also supplies bore hole water for other domestic chores for the village.
Riziki was introduced to Milango by her friends and is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to repair the tap and construct a good site for the selling of water. Riziki’s future ambition is to make her business a big source of portable water for the village. The challenges she faces are theft and some customers not paying on time.
