Matluba is married and has two children. For more than two years, she has sold women's clothes from her shop in Spitamen's main market. Her husband has a car and helps her by bringing goods from their home to the shop. He also acquires new inventory from nearby wholesale markets. Matluba has done very well as a businesswoman, with quick turnover of her inventory and many regular customers. She has applied for a Kiva loan to purchase winter clothes, which she knows will be very popular and sell very quickly during the busy holiday season.
