Roseline's story

Roseline 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 visit 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. Roseline is a 24 years old, married, and a mother of two. One of her children is in school, while the second one is too young to attend school. She and her family live in the Nyalenda area of Kisumu. Roseline has a small business selling new shoes for ladies. She began her business in 2008 and gets her stock of shoes from Busia, Kenya (on the border of Uganda) and from Uganda. For two years prior, she used to sell second-hand clothes, but changed her business due to the high level of competition and lack of market for the products. Roseline has applied for a loan of approximately $275 USD. She will use the loan money to buy shoes in bulk in order to grow her business.
