Bekani B. Bvunguti applied for a livelihood development grant, which LifeNets was able to fill. The grant enabled Bvunguti to supply a 20-room rest house with toilets and safe running water, making it possible to open the rest house to guests. This was able to be done at a cost of only $900 to LifeNets.
Located in Monkey Bay, near Lake Malawi, the Fiso rest house is in an excellent location for receiving local and foreign guests. Bvunguti, who charges guests 250 kwaches (about $1.60) a night, reports that the income from this rest house is helping him provide for his relatives.
