Said's story

Said, age 51, is married and has four children. He lives with his family in a community in the Mombasa municipality in Kenya. Said has a grocery store in his home. In his business he sells products for family consumption, like basic foods (corn, rice, and beans), dairy products, commonly used medicines, soft drinks, and personal hygiene products. In addition to this, he has a water-selling business selling to the community.
