Bashir is a 33-year-old man from Kakamega town in the western part of Kenya. He supports two people in his family: his wife Rose who is a business lady within the same market, and his child who is four years old.
He has a retail shop which has been operating for the last 13 years and makes a monthly income of 20,000 KES. He has taken his third loan with Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) Ltd, which he will use to add more stock of sugar, salt, cooking oil, maize flour and wheat flour.
