Mwanamvua is 45 years old, widowed, and lives with her five children. She has a store where she sells basic household necessities, such as beans, rice, bread, instant products, soap and other items.

She has several years with the business, and that has given her valuable experience in sales, which allows her to obtain better earnings. The business is located in her home and is very well known. She has a large clientele, as people prefer her because everything she sells is top quality and affordable. In addition to the unequaled service, she is always at the service of her customers.

Mwanamvua is an energetic, hard-working woman with many goals for the future. She is ready to do her very best, as she knows that only in this way will she be able to fulfill her dreams and achieve success.
