Wilfred N. is a 59-year-old nurse who manages his own private facility in Chuka, in the eastern part of Kenya. He lives with his wife and five of his children at his Kathigirithini home.

He qualified as a nurse in 1976, and worked for the government for 22 years. In 1998, he retired and set up his own clinic, Sunrise Medical Clinic, in the town of Chuka. He offers a wide range of services, including general curative, family planning, maternal and child health services, and also has a pharmacy and a laboratory.

N. attributes his success to hard work and assistance from two previous microfinance loans from K-MET. He requests another loan of US $1200 so he can increase his stock of drugs and integrate other services in his facility.

Important Information

Please note that this Field Partner started working with Kiva before certain core risk and due diligence policies were put into place and therefore does not meet our current minimum risk criteria (K-Met has less than 1,000 borrowers and has not submitted recent audited financial statements to Kiva). K-Met is a unique microfinance organization that targets private health care providers and community health workers as a means to fulfill its mission of promoting development in underserved communities through innovative health and education programs. Private providers are given loans to upgrade their facilities and community health workers, who volunteer through K-Met, are given access to loan funds to grow their businesses and as a means of incentivizing them to remain involved in community health work with K-Met. Kiva was K-Met’s first external lender and the organization is rated a Kiva Star Rating of 1, which is the riskiest level. As a result of K-Met’s strong social mission and unique approach to microfinance and health, Kiva believes that loans to borrowers with K-Met may still be of interest to Kiva lenders, despite the increased risk, and has allowed the organization to continue fundraising on Kiva.
