Nakayza Ziyada Group's story

Ziyada N. is 30 years of age and married. She rents a one-room house where she stays with her two children and husband. They have access to piped water and electricity. Ziyada has two meals a day and her greatest expense in a month is that of feeding and paying tuition for her children.

Ziyada runs a food kiosk in the market and must pay market dues for operating there. She receives about 15 clients a day and they are both men and women. She has done this kind of business for over 10 years now and has not done any other type of business before. The main challenges she faces while doing her business are the rainy season and petty thieves, who are many in the market in which she operates.

She has worked with MCDT for seven years now. She chose to work with MCDT because through MCDT she receives enough money to boost her business. She will use this loan to pay school fees for her children and use the balance to pay rent for the house in which she stays. Ziyada hopes to continue expanding her business to improve on her income.
