Purity is a 45-year-old married lady with three children. She raises chickens for sale at her place in Githurai. She has been in this business five years. Besides poultry farming, Purity wants to open a tailoring shop so that she can boost her income for the family’s well being. She already has the sewing machines, so all she needs is the materials and a place to set up the shop.

Purity was introduced to KADET by a friend who was already a member. This is her fourth loan and she has had no previous loans from other micro-finance institutions. She wants to use the money from this loan to buy more chickens and chicken feed, and in addition she also plans to stock the tailoring shop.
