Nkaate O. is 32 years old. He is married to Napilosh Kasale and he is a father of two school-going children, aged 5 and 18. Nkaate has been a tomato farmer for the last five years.
Nkaate learned about KADET from a colleague who is already a KADET registered client in his area of residence. This will be his third loan. He is planning to spend 35,000 Kenyan shillings (Kshs) to purchase fertilizers and chemicals for his tomato farming and with the other Kshs 15,000, he will buy some sheep for fattening to later sell at a profit. With the profits he hopes to make from the proceeds of this loan, he plans to reinvest in the farm and plant more acres of tomatoes.
Nkaate hopes to become a large-scale farmer, both in tomato farming and sheep rearing.
