Rosemary's story

Rosemary A. recently joined the K-MET volunteer Community Health Worker (CHW) group in Kisumu, Kenya.

As a CHW, she will be trained by K-MET and will begin visiting members of her community who are sick with a variety of illnesses. Her work will include distributing Nutriflour (a vitamin enriched flour produced by K-MET) to malnourished patients, providing reproductive health education, referring patients to local clinics and hospitals, and providing basic health care.

Rosemary is 22 years old, married, and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. She has a fruit and vegetable stall, where she sells sukuma wiki (kale), tomatoes, and fruits, in the Nyalenda area of Kisumu.

She initiated this business in 2002 in order to enable herself to earn an income to provide for her daily needs. Rosemary was a primary school drop-out and was finding it difficult to get work, so she decided to start her own business.

She has applied for a loan of $150 USD, which she will use to buy vegetables in bulk in order to maximize her profit.
