Chumbani is 24 years of age and lives with her husband, who is employed in a private company, and with their son, who is in school. She is a very responsible, hard-working and kind woman who has her own business, selling cashew nuts at the market.
Chumbani's business is in the municipal market, a location that has its advantages, due to the volume of people who visit the locale daily.She gets her merchandise from farmers in the rural areas and she admits that her job requires a lot of sacrifice since she has to walk through their farms.
Wishing to boost earnings, Chumbani is soliciting a loan from Yehu so she can purchase five sacks of cashew nuts and provide for their transport.
