Nzalambi is a 42-year-old woman. She is married with three children. She owns a butcher shop. She has five years of experience. She has one assistant and rents this shop to sell meat. She usually sells beef and mutton. She starts her business in the morning to buy cattle and sheep, and then she prepares the meat for sale.
Fresh meat is very popular in Mwambalazi, where Nzalambi comes from, and people use it in everyday dishes. The main challenge in her business is that there is not enough fresh meat to meet the demands of her customers.
Nzalambi has now approached for a loan of 50,000 Kenya shillings to buy sheep and cattle for the butcher.
