George is 34 years old; he is single, but supports his parents. He buys, sells, and transports charcoal to his customers.

He has been in business for the past two years, with a monthly income of KES. 20,000, which he uses for his basic needs, and the support of his parents.

He is applying for his first loan term from KADET LTD, after being introduced by an existing KADET LTD customer. George will use the loan to buy more sacks of charcoal in bulk for sale, especially during the high season. With the anticipated profit, he will expand his business.

His hopes and dreams are to save, expand his business, and own a big lorry to transport his charcoal. He currently hires a pickup for transport, which is very costly.
