A loan of $800 helped expand her business.


Dorothy's story

Dorothy is a forty-year-old mother of six children. She lives in Kisumu, Kenya with her family. She is the proprietor of a food kiosk established in 1999. She specializes in making chapattis, the local favorites, which she serves with boiled beans and green lentils to her clients. She also makes mandazis, normally served with tea. Her business has flourished over the last nine years and this she attributes to four microfinance loans received from KMET/KIVA. She now requires an additional US $800 for expansion.
