One of our primary school teaching assistants started a small business while stuck at home to sustain the small basic needs of her family – every morning she fries and sells a local snack of cassava chips.

Suzan says her temporary business is helping her buy soap, sugar, salt and food.

Unfortunately the suppliers of cassava sometimes make late deliveries which causes her to go searching for other suppliers. All this delays her sales on that day and customers look elsewhere for their breakfast.

But she is happy with what she is doing and she hopes that even when work resumes at Child of Hope, she will be able to employ someone to keep the business going in order to supplement her daily income.
