Umazi lives in a home with her husband and her three children. She runs a food stall which she began two years ago. She started it with the support of her husband to receive earnings while staying at home. She starts her activities early in the morning and works up to late in the evening.

She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients with the intention of expanding the business and providing her customers with those dishes that are most necessary. She plans to purchase rice, sugar, flour, meat, and firewood. This investment will improve the stall's inventory levels.

Her objective is to be sufficiently profitable and provide a variety of foods to provide her customers with their preferences. This will help her to improve the support she gives her family.
