Harrison is 34 years old and the father of two children, both of whom are currently studying. For the last five years, he has earned a living by selling goods and services from his general store in Malindi, where he earns a monthly profit of 14,500 KES (Kenyan shillings).
Harrison was introduced to Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) by a credit officer, and he is applying for his second loan of 40,000 KES to purchase additional stock needed for his business. He will use the profit from the business to pay for school fees, purchase food for the family and expand the current business. Harrison hopes to own his own supermarket in the future so as to improve his financial stability.
