Ezinah's story

Ezinah I. is a 58-year-old nurse who lives with her husband and their four children in Kisumu, Kenya. Two of her children are joining University by September this year.

Ezinah trained as a nurse in the year 1969. After training, she worked in government hospitals for 35 years. In 2005, she opened her own clinic (Mt Everest Medical Clinic) in Manyatta, one of the most densely populated slums of Kisumu. In her clinic she offers general curative services, family planning, counseling, and maternal and child health care services, and also has integrated a pharmacy and laboratory within the clinic. She, in collaboration with K-MET, sells safe motherhood vouchers to expecting poor mothers, which enables them to access reproduction health services in certain medical facilities.

Ezinah attributes her success to hard work, perseverance, and assistance from K-MET’s microfinance loan. She has been able to renovate her facility, purchase a stock of drugs, and improve the quality of care she provides. Ezinah plans buy drugs and equipment for her pharmacy with the US $1200 loan.
