Judith's story

Judith is a 28-year-old mother of two children aged 3 and 4. She sells cereals like maize, rice and beans that she purchases from Uganda. Generally, wholesalers come in by sailboat to Dunga Beach in Kisumu, where the storekeepers make purchases. She sells her cereals in a small kiosk in the Kibuye market, Kisumu’s largest open-air market. She is asking for 10,000 KSH to increase her stock because she lacks the finances to do so herself.

Judith recently joined the K-MET volunteer Community Health Worker (CHW) group in Kisumu, Kenya. As a CHW she will be trained by K-MET and will begin visiting members of her community who are sick with a variety of illnesses. Her work will include distributing Nutriflour (a vitamin enriched flour produced by K-MET) to malnourished patients, providing reproductive-health education, referring patients to local clinics and hospitals, and providing basic health care.
