Jane's story

Jane O. is a volunteer member of the Schobac group in Siaya, Kenya. The group has received training from K-MET on home based care patient services and is also part of the K-MET microfinance program.

She owns a tailoring shop in Sagam Siaya, Kenya. Her shop is in her home, which she opened in 1983. She makes dresses for men, women and children, which she sells to various market places. She is able to generate Kshs 8000 in profits. Besides tailoring, she grows crops such as maize and beans. Currently, she has over 20 bags of maize which she intends to sell when prices go up.

Jane has applied for a loan to add more stock of tailoring materials and invest the remaining amount in her farm.

Jane is married to a retired prison warden officer. They have 5 children, all of whom have finished school, though some are still dependents because they are attending college.
