Luvuno, 36, is a married woman with six children, all of whom attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
For the past ten years, she has operated a cereals business, selling millet, sorghum, maize and beans from door to door and also from home. She faces a major challenge of the high cost of transportation while moving from door to door. She dreams of expanding her business in the future.
With the 40,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) she wants to purchase sacks of millet, sorghum, beans and maize for resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
