    Keeping Fatima H.'s store well-stocked

    Day 28

    From Soap to Spaghetti

    Welcome back! It’s our final day in Garowe, Somalia before we head off to our next location.

    We started yesterday with Fatima H., a small business owner, who operates a small shop out of her house. She earns most of her income as a part-time butcher, and she usually sells a goat or sheep each day. Yesterday, we helped her pick out a goat that she would be able to sell the next day.

    Today, we’re helping her stock up on some basic items that in her store! We’re helping her refill items that she already sells—from soap to spaghetti—and pick out some items she hasn’t been able to offer her customer base yet! With all these fresh offerings, Fatima H. is set up keep doing great business.
