Lynnet Mlambo was born and grew up in Zimbabwe, the fourth child in a family of six. Her dedication to the financial services sector began early on during her one year work-related learning in 2008, where she learned a lot about the struggles and challenges faced by micro-entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe, especially around access to financial services for women-owned businesses. She considers volunteerism as an opportunity to share knowledge and experience with others, learn new skills and gain professional exposure. She has volunteered with organizations that include Save the Children Zimbabwe and Junior Achievement Kenya. Lynnet has a personal motto, “discover to develop,” as she enjoys travelling, meeting new people, exploring new opportunities and gaining professional exposure. She has been to Kenya, Zambia and South Africa in pursuit of her professional dreams, including post graduate studies, attending micro-finance conferences and corporate social responsibility events.
