Kalim is 48 years old, married and blessed with three children who range in age from 22 to 27. For the last 10 years, she has made a living selling electrical supplies and earns about KES 15,000 a month, all of which she uses to support her family. She is applying for her second loan from KADET after repaying her first one off successfully. She will use this loan to expand her business and buy more electrical bulbs, switches and cable to sell to her customers. Her long-term goals are to open a wholesale electric supply center and buy her own business vehicle. She believes that doing this will allow her to improve her family's living standards.
