Rosemary's story

Rosemary A. O. is thirty-eight years old, widowed, and has three children who are all in school. Her business is located at Kondele in Kisumu, a lakeside city in Kenya. Her business is situated along the Kondele-Kibos road within a residential area and it is well known by the name of Maroon Enterprise.

Rosemary is involved in selling timber and poles to individual developers in Kisumu and institutions as well. She also has a hardware store where she sells nails and timber, and she provides transport services. Her major challenge is theft of timber from the yard and police harrassment due to illegal logging. She is using her loan to add to her stock of timber. In future, she hopes to grow her business and open a carpentry shop at the timber yard. She is very hard-working, reliable, polite, and jovial.
