Gladys, 27 and separated from her husband, is the custodian of their two children, John and Jennifer, who are ten and nine respectively. In the business of selling food to local residents in Kibokoni Malindi for the past two years, Gladys was introduced to Kadet by an existing client, and this will be her second loan. She earns a monthly profit of Kshs 6,500 and will use this loan to increase her grocery stock, improve her business stand, open another business hawking clothes, and pay transport and miscellaneous expenses.
Gladys plans to reinvest the extra income by employing more staff in her business. A hardworking woman, she hopes to acquire a plot of land and eventually build rental houses.
