Saruni is 23 years old. He is single and supports four people. He is an animal trader and does also farming on his own piece of land which he has been doing for the last two years.

He learned about KADET through posters. This will be his first loan and he is planning to buy farm inputs and hire machinery to prepare the land. Wheat has proved to be doing well in his area due to favorable climatic conditions. With the profits he hopes to make from the proceeds of this loan, he plans to re-invest in the farm and plant more acres of wheat.

His future dream is that he will be able to buy a bigger piece of land so he can plant more wheat for commercial farming and buy his own farm machinery and educate his children. He is a hard-working man who is focused on his set goals.
