A loan of $725 helped to buy a freezer to store her fish.

Mary's story

Mary A. J. is a married lady who has four children aged between twelve and twenty-three years old. She describes herself as God-fearing and customer-friendly.

Mary sells fish to local people. She has been in this business for ten years now. Her business is located along the roadside in Kisumu, the region of Kenya that includes the famous Lake Victoria and is well known for production of tilapia fish. She works very hard to keep her business doing well.

Mary says that her business is profitable, but her major challenge is a lack of refrigeration facilities to keep the fish fresh longer. She is using her loan of 60,000 KES to buy a freezer to store her fish. Mary hopes to be a wholesaler in future. She also sees herself owning fish ponds in which she will raise fish to sell.
