Nzadze, age 45, runs a food stall business. She is a widow with six children living in Mwambalazi, Kenya. The family lives in a house that has neither electricity nor piped water.

From a young age, Nzadze worked at a wholesale food market, where she sold tea and snacks for breakfast to the people who worked there. She did this for some years before deciding to open her own food stall. She started her business by selling a variety of foodstuffs on the street, such as fried potatoes, sandwiches, sodas, and juice. Today, she has established a food stall that is strategically located at the trading center.

She plans to use this loan to purchase wheat flour, rice, sugar, and cooking oil. She hopes that her business will continue to grow and would like to transform it into a hotel business in future.
