Riziki's Group's story
Riziki is a thirty-two-year-old single mother of five children. She works on other people's farms for income and is paid by relief-service non-governmental organizations to dig for water. Her job working on farms is seasonal and sometimes she misses the opportunity to work for the relief organizations due to a high supply of local labor. Riziki is "fed up with the impoverished life she is exposed to and hopes to benefit from the sale of trees to enable her to live a decent life." She is joining the KOMAZA micro-forestry program so that she can educate her children, build a house and start other businesses with the profits from her tree farm.
