Luvuno is married with three school going children, which is the reason for her hard work. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
Luvuno has operated a cafe business, making comestibles like tea, beans and chapati (flat bread) for sale to passersby and neighbours. She cited seasonality as her major challenge.
With the loan, she wants to purchase a stock of goods, maize flour and wheat flour for the business. She joined Yehu to get financial support.
