Maloya wants to build a market shelter to promote business.

Community Problem: Maloya's market is the business center of Maloya, Chilonga, and Makunula Villages. Merchants from these villages do business in Maloya on market and non-market days. However, bad weather (sun and rainfall) currently damage commodities at Maloya's market because vendors do business out in the open, exposed to the elements. For example, Judith Meya brought a large quantity of tomatoes to Maloya, but, after three days of continuous rain, half of her inventory was destroyed. This affected her family for about 2 two months in terms of reduced food supply and lack of money for clothing and school fees. Judith has two children who attend secondary school.

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

Outcome: a market shelter for the village
