A loan of $200 helped to buy 100kg of fish.


Irine's story

Irine lives in Kongowea Kenya. She is 42 years of age and a mother of five. Two of her children still attend school. For two years now she has been selling fish in the local market. She knew Milango (the Kiva field partner) through her friends and now she seeks a loan to buy 100kg of fish that she will be able to resell for income. The main challenge that she faces is the competition from other traders in the same business. She wants her children to have a better education and the standard of living of her family to improve.
