Emma Akinyi's story

Emma started a weaving/embroidery business four years ago and has built up her income to 25,000 Kenya Shillings a month from this business. She never took formal classes, but always had an interest in learning how to embroider and weave. Emma sought out a knowledgeable friend and learned the basics from her. Through her own practice and dedication, Emma became an advanced weaver. Emma now wants to diversify her income by entering the fish distribution market. This is Emma's third loan from KADET, but the first which she will use for a brand new business. Emma lives in an urban area and most of her customers are middle income earners. Emma's dream is to go to college and attend training in interior design. She is hoping that her fish distribution business will provide her with the money that she needs for tuition.
