Mary is 47 years old and married to A. Obure, an accountant. Together they have two children: Charles, 23, and Phillies, 17.
Mary has operated a clothing sales business for the last three years. She serves mainly middle-class customers who are passersby, as her business is along one of the main roads in town.
Mary has never borrowed from other microfinance institutions before and was introduced to KADET by existing group members. She has applied for a loan, which she plans to use to purchase new lessos (a kind of clothing) for women, which are in high demand in her area. With the extra profits she expects from sales, Mary intends to send her children to the university and to expand her business.
Mary's future hopes and dreams are to become a wholesale supplier of lessos and to venture into the sale of rice within the marketplace.
