Mary, 39, is single with one child who is five years old. She lives at a rental house that has electricity but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the family.

For the past three years, she has operated a cosmetic business, selling to her neighbours and passersby. She faces a major challenge of seasonality in her place of operation. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
