Jennifer Njoki is a 60-year-old married lady and the mother of four children between the ages of 16 and 27. Only the last born is still in school. The others are working; the first as a counselor, the second as a cook and messenger, and the third working for Kenya motors.
Jennifer operates a food kiosk and she also sells grocery items in the same makeshift stall. She serves tea with snacks like sweet potatoes and doughnuts to her customers who are residents of her area of business in Kiambu area. The grocery business has items like sweet potatoes, tomatoes, onions and so on. She is able to make a profit of about $187 per month.
Jennifer was introduced to KADET by staffers who were conducting a marketing initiative in the area. She has applied for her third loan which she will use to expand her business by adding things like charcoal, groundnuts, beans and peas to sell.
She would like to see her business expand more and give her more profit, which she would use to educate all her children, and if possible send them abroad for further studies. She believes that her hard work and faithfulness will get her there.
