Chiboga is a single woman who owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food.

For the past four months, she has operated a fish-selling business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality. During rainy season the availability of fish for sale is low. She dreams of purchasing a refrigerator to store fish for sale.
