In the rapidly expanding cities of East Africa, where unemployment is high and opportunities are scarce, women are selling in the marketplace as an economic option. They share a common barrier--access to credit. The African Market Women Series documents the creative and innovative measures designed by women to get the credit they need, and profiles East African women who are becoming significant participants in their local economies. From the Shore is the story of how a small group of Muslim women in a Kenyan village broke with tradition, bought a boat and now employ the men in a thriving fish business. Where Credit Is Due introduces enterprising Kenyan market women who have been able to obtain loans through a special credit program introduced by Women's World Banking. Fair Trade introduces a fishmonger, a stone-crusher and other women who have thrown off a history of exclusion to venture into the marketplace.
