Rose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped Rose to buy stock of fish to sell.

Rose's story

This is Rose, who is a widow and a mother of two. She is a fishmonger and buys fish from the shores of Lake Victoria. To preserve her fish, she either fries them or dries the small ones in the sun.

Rose buys fish in bulk to get a favorable price, so she is able to attract both wholesale and retail clients. Selling fish is a lucrative business, as more people are now health conscious and have more fish in their diet.

With a KIVA loan, Rose will be able to buy more stock of fish to sell. Her dream is to be a renowned fish supplier in her region.
