Antony is 27 years old. For the last 15 years, he has earned a living by selling new clothes, dressmaking supplies and household goods in Mpeketoni, Lamu. He earns a monthly profit of 11,400 Kenyan shillings (KES).
Antony was introduced to Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) by a credit officer, and he is applying for his second loan. This loan of 40,000 KES is to buy additional stock of shower cups, utensil trays, water buckets and basins to sell to his clients. He will use the profits made possible by this loan to pay for his niece's school fees. Antony's goal for the future is to own a well established retail store in the area, so as to help improve his family's living standards.
