Sosola wants to build a market shelter to promote business.


Community Problem: Sosola is a commerical hub for the surrounding area. It has a popular market, but bad weather drives away customers and harms inventory.


Community Solution: Build a market shelter and invite vendors and customers to do business under a roof. The market shelter will allow more businesses to sell more things on more days of the week, leaving more money in the pockets of local residents.


Partners: National Peace Corps Association & Friends of Malawi


Outcome: a market shelter for the village
