Luvuno is a 58-year-old woman and the mother of seven. She is married to Mwatela who operates an agricultural business, selling goat meat at the market. She lives with her family in the rural area of Samburu where most people depend on business to earn a living due to the lack of sufficient rain over the year to conduct agriculture.

For the past five years, Luvuno has run a kiosk in her home serving the neighborhood. Her goal is to move forward in life but the main challenge she faces is the high price of commodities and the lack of enough capital to invest in her business. However, she is optimistic and she is sure that this investment from the loan she is currently requesting will help her grow her business. She plans to buy bales of flour, rice, sugar, sodas, etc.
