Joyce's story

Joyce is 30 years old and engaged in running a catering business. She is self-reliant and business minded.

Joyce is one of the women who joined an association of catering businesses back in 2009. The association was organized by small group of mothers working in the informal sector who reside in the city.

At the beginning of this year, a newly rebuilt market set up created space for mothers in the association to sell their cooked food. Upon the completion of the main market, they’re now carrying out their normal business.

When she started selling her food again, Joyce found it more suitable because of the market's location and customer demand was really high. Thus, she is seeking assistance to buy fresh chickens and vegetables to cook and sell her food at the main market.
