Umazi, 39, lives with her life partner and their five children. She is very responsible and wants her children to have a good, stable life, so she works to help her husband. Umazi runs a snack shop – a store where she makes and sells chips (fried potatoes) and fried eggs. She runs it from her home and makes the typical dish every day of the week, taking advantage of the weekends when she sells the most. She is requesting a loan to buy all the necessary basic ingredients, like raw potatoes, cooking oil, and trays of eggs.
