Kitita is a 38-year-old farmer who is married to Rhoda and is the father of six children, aged 14,12, nine, seven, four and two years respectively. He has been farming wheat on his own piece of land for the last 20 years, making a monthly income of 50,000 Kenyan shillings (KES).
After learning about KADET LTD from his brother, who is a long-time client of the agency, Kitita has acquired his first loan of 100,000 KES as an individual client. This will enable him to prepare his land, as well as purchase seedlings and fertilizers. He plans to use the proceeds to plant a variety of other crops like maize and beans.
Kitita hopes to expand his business into a large commercial venture one day.
