Mary
Mary K. is a widow with four children who are all in college. She has been making and selling beadwork for the past year and also runs a butcher shop in Kahawa Wendani, Nairobi.

A friend introduced Mary to KADET and this will be her first loan. She has never borrowed from other MFIs. Mary intends to use her loan to buy wholesale raw materials for beadwork, and also to buy some fixtures and fittings for her butcher shop. Most of her customers are middle-class income earners in her neighborhood.



One day, Mary hopes to own a factory or a company that will specialize in beadwork.
