Luvuno, a married mother of five children, lives in Samburu, Kenya and has been selling goat meat at the market to butcher shop operators for five years. With a small amount of capital, she started buying goats to raise in her yard, fattening and then selling them. She is supported in this business by her husband.

Luvuno's business has gradually grown, and now her main customers are not only neighbours but also restaurants and businesses that sell special meals. This has helped her business growth as customers always refer new buyers to her.

Luvuno's main challenge is having enough working capital to buy more goats for resale to increase her income, which her family depends upon. For this reason, she is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more goats.
