Lizzy
Lizzy is married and a merchant who sells clothes. She lives in Kisauni, and has one child. Lizzy began selling in the marketplace thanks to the financial assistance from her husband, who works in the defense force. Gradually she was able to increase her business and now she offers her products throughout the district.

Lizzy travels to Tanzania and brings back articles of clothing, which allows her to continue offering good prices. The articles of clothing that she sells most are those for women and children such as blouses, t-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, and lingerie. She is requesting assistance so that she can buy articles of clothing that are in season. Lizzy wants to be well-stocked with these items so that she can offer them to her customers.
