Chizi has always been noted for being very hardworking. This has allowed her and her family to carry on despite the great difficulties that have presented themselves in her life. Chizi is married and has five children, to whom she has always wanted to offer access to a high-quality education. That's why she has worked hard to seek better economic conditions for her household.

Previously, Chizi worked as an employee, and for a while she also worked for a relative. There, she learned the business of selling groceries and everyday household goods. Since she got her own store a few years ago, the quality of life in her household has improved considerably. Despite the fact that she doesn't have a great deal of capital and she still lacks many products that she could offer her customers, her hard work has kept her business open and growing.

Since she doesn't have much capital but wants to offer a greater variety of products to her customers, Chizi is seeking a loan to buy more inventory and be able to offer her customers more variety. Her dream is to carry on with her business and be able to offer her five children a better quality of life and better opportunities to progress economically.
