She gets additional income from selling piped water.

Christine works from home seven days out of every week and sells on a retail basis. Her major business challenges include seasonality and defaulters. She is aspiring of owning a fully stocked restaurant and also buying a plot of land. She decided to join MCDT SACCO because they are cooperative.
