Linah is a married woman with two children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that neither has electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are school fees and food for the family.

For the past five years, she has operated a shop kiosk business, selling to her neighbors and passersby. She mentioned price fluctuation as her major challenge. She dreams of establishing a wholesale shop in the future.
