Nanzugu sells fish. She lives with her family, that is made up of her husband and five children. She learned her business from her aunt before she was married and she works everyday of the week. One of her advantages is that she already has a customer base. A risk that she encounters is climate change.
She needs a loan to buy fresh product: fish, as well as cooking oil for frying her fish before she sells it from her home. Nanzugu hopes to improve her family life by providing stability, and in the future to open a kiosk.
