Rosemary Onyango's story

Rosemary Onyango O. is a 31-year-old mother of four children, ages 14, 9, 4.5, and 4. All of her children are in school. She is married to an auto-mechanic and lives in Yolanda slum. She has owned her own motor-vehicle repair shop since 1998 and likes doing business in Kisumu because she was born here. Rosemary estimates that she sees around 15 drivers per day. She is asking for 10,000 K Sh. to buy auto parts but is eager to pay off this loan and ask for a larger one. She will use most of the profits to pay for her children’s school fees.

Rosemary 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.
