Martha's story

Martha is a 38-year-old woman residing in Lusaka. She owns a cosmetic stand within her neighborhood. Martha is a mother of four children, all of whom are still in school. Because of her children, she aspires to grow her cosmetic business by becoming a wholesaler so that she can support her children through to University. Though business is time demanding, Martha still manages to do the things she loves such as going to church and relating with friends. She decided to buy the domestic mimimoto stove out of curiosity, and an expectation of reduction in her cooking expenses.
