Rosy from Eldoret, Kenya

I'm a survivor of fistula. Starting my own business will allow me to provide for my 2 boys.

My deepest desire is to be able to feed, clothe and educate my children. Help me start my business so I can do just that.


I am a 29-year-old woman from Kenya. I am an obstetric fistula survivor and the mother of two small boys ages 5 and 2. I just completed an introduction to tailoring course!

My goals are to own my own shop. I want to sell groceries in my small village and have a place to do my tailoring business.

I need to pay for my sewing machine, pay for rent on a small space to work from and buy materials.

Meeting this need will help me to support myself so I can stand on my own. My deepest desire is to be able to feed, clothe and educate my children.
