Riziki is from the village of Amkeni, Msambweni, Kenya. She has a food stall business and she tells us that she’s been in business for more than one year, so she has good knowledge of this business.
She comments that she has an established good clientele and that it’s the only food stall in the neighborhood. It’s quite a sacrifice because she must rise at dawn to do her purchases so that she can lower her costs and be able to make higher profits.
She defines herself as a very hardworking, tenacious woman who always strives to get ahead. Through her work, Riziki has managed to make some home improvements and provide her children with the necessary schooling.
She needs this loan to buy cooking fat oil, wheat flour, maize flour and other supplies that she needs to stock her store.
