Chizi, 43, lives with her husband, Chaka, in Samburu. She has five children. She has been operating a kiosk for the last three years, selling a variety of products. Chizi has an excellent group of customers who buy from her on credit and make their payments punctually. She has been building up her customer base gradually, evaluating them based on their potential and ability to pay. Chizi is always attentive to how the market moves, so that she can offer the best products at the lowest prices. Her goal for the future is to have her own retail shop with a great diversity of products to make a positive impact on her customers, while she serves them and generates income. At this time, Chizi is applying for a Kiva loan so that she can buy sugar and bags of wheat and maize flour to meet her clients' needs. This way, she is able to manage financial sustainability for her business and generate more and more income, which benefits her personal well-being and that of her family.
