Mary J. is a lady who is married to Mr. Michael Ochuka and they have adult children who are no longer living with them. Mary owns a tree nursery. She purchases, matures and then sells the trees to others so that they can plant them on their farms. She also offers advice on how to better care for the trees, to her clients. She has been doing this for the past 20 years and she takes home a profit of about KES 10,000 per month.

Mary has applied for her first loan with KADET LTD, which she will use to buy more baby trees and later sell to clients when the trees mature. She hopes to earn some profit, which she will use to purchase food for her family.

Her future hopes are to expand her business so that she is able to add on to the family's income and, thus, sustain her family.
