Norris's story

Norris is 48 years old. He and his wife Veronica are shown together in this photo. They started a restaurant 5 years ago in a market in Lusaka. They also raise quails and make peanut butter to sell. They have 5 children. They all go to school. The oldest is in college and the youngest twin girls, Hope and Faith, are in 1st grade. His dream is to be able to send them all to the best schools possible so they will be better people in society and have a better life.
He is asking for a loan to buy a stock of gasifying cook stoves and biomass pellets to sell to other restaurant owners in the market. He is a respected leader there and wants to promote and sell a healthier, faster, cheaper alternative to the charcoal they use to cook in their restaurants. He also wants to help save the forests of Zambia, which are being cut down to make charcoal. The money he will gain will give him capital to develop his restaurant and a food supply business.
