A loan of $800 helped to increase the stock of dry fish.


Dina's story

Dina A. is a 65-year-old widow and mother of four children. She lives in Kisumu, Kenya. Dina started her business selling fish in 1961. With the profits, Dina set up four housing units (mud-walled houses), which she rents out at Kshs 500 (approximately US $15) a month. Her monthly income totals US $200. Dina's business is in a prime location on a busy street. Her years of experience and the friendly relationship she has with customers, plus three previous loans from KMET, have enabled her to establish a good clientele base. Dina plans to expand her business with her next loan of US $800. She will use the loan to invest in purchasing a stock of dry fish and to build more housing units.
