Janet's story

Janet is a 38-year-old woman residing in Lusaka, Zambia. She likes gardening and being at home with her family when not at work.

Janet and her husband are both tailors. Like every other ambitious businesswoman, she plans to grow her business to the point where she is able to get contracts from bigger companies to make clothes. This would fulfill her wish to have a more stable monthly income to support her family financially.

Janet has applied for a loan to buy a Mimi Moto cookstove that uses biomass fuel pellets rather than charcoal, which is more expensive. It also will fulfill her desire to have a fast-cooking means to prepare meals for her family.
