Riziki is married and lives in Samburu with her husband. Riziki's business is selling of fresh vegetables and fruits from home to her neighbours and passersby. She started her business seven years ago, with a small amount of capital; she started buying fruits and vegetables and reselling them. She is supported in this business by her husband.
Riziki's business has gradually grown and now her main customers are not only neighbours but also restaurant operators. This helps her business' growth as they always refer new buyers to her. Riziki's main challenge is having enough working capital to buy more fruits and vegetables for resale to increase his income. For this reason, she is requesting a Kiva loan to buy sacks of fruits and vegetables and to invest in a charcoal selling business. This will help increase her income, upon which her family depends.
