Ian Maina
Ian, 56, is a hardworking man. He is supporting one child and they live in a place called Kabuku, in Limuru town, which is on the outskirts of Nairobi city. He sells charcoal and firewood which is used mainly for fuel by the locals of this area.

He has been running this business for 16 years and he finds it profitable. This is the fourth loan he has received from KADET and he intends to use it to buy more charcoal and firewood for sale so he can expand his business. He also plans to build a better shed from where he will sell the charcoal.

If the loan improves his business, he hopes to supply the neighbouring schools and colleges with firewood and provide a good education for his child.
