Zuwiya lives in the Coastal region of Kenya in a suburban area called Likoni. She is married and has three children. She started her business of selling cosmetics and clothes six years ago. She gives thanks to her aunt who sells cosmetic products because one day she told Zuwiya to help her sell them and Zuwiya liked that very much.
At present Zuwiya has become independent with the sale of cosmetics and clothing. The way that she works is to go around to various places in the city offering the products among friends and acquaintances.
With the loan she plans to buy beauty items like lipstick, eye shadow, perfume, cream, etc, as well as bales of clothing to take advantage of the forthcoming festive season.
