Nibunda is married and her three children, all of whom attend school, are the reason for her hard work. She owns a house that has electricity but not piped water.
She operates a cafe business making staples like rice, tea, beans and chapati (flat bread) for sale to passersby and neighbors. She cited seasonality as her major challenge.
With the Kshs 25,000 Nibunda wants to purchase a stock of goods, like maize flour, wheat flour, rice and drinks for the business. She joined Yehu to get financial support.
