A loan of $150 helped buy fish stocks.


Rosemary's story

Rosemary is married with children, and all are in primary school. She is a primary school dropout. She started her business in 2002 and has not undertaken any training. She is an optimistic lady who inspires local women in her community’s self-help group dealing with poverty eradication projects.

Rosemary completed her first loan successfully. The fish she sells compliment other foods with protein in the local community area. She has been in the business for over six years and has gained enough experience. With the help of a second loan of $150 through Kiva, she intends to increase her stock so she can sell both retail and as a supplier to other fishmongers.
