A loan of $275 helped renovations and more supplies.


Lorna Awuor's story

Lorna is 23 years old, and she runs a small shop that sells basic goods like bread, soap, salt, and sugar. Lorna buys the products from a wholesaler in town and sells them near her home in Nyamasaria. She will use the loan to expand the room in which she is selling goods; she will also buy a larger variety of products to sell.



Lorna is well-educated; she finished high school, and hopes to save up enough money to go to university part-time for accounting. She is an unwed single mom who supports her daughter as well as her three younger siblings.



Lorna wants to open a health support group in her area, because she believes that the people in her community don’t know how to help each other. She is a community health worker already, and someday hopes to be able to expand her influence to help more sick people in her community.



K-MET, the NGO giving the loan, is unique in that it is not a traditional micro-finance institution. Rather, it is a development organization focused on raising health standards in Kenya. Many of the loan recipients from this organization are volunteer community healthcare workers like Lorna.
