Samuel is 50 years old, from Nyahururu. His spouse is Jennifer, who is a businesswoman, and he has seven children, aged 27, 25, 23, 18, 16, 13 and 10. Samuel is a butcher, and has been running his business for the past 19 years. As a way to continue providing a constant supply of meat to his customers, who have become more numerous over time, Samuel has applied for his first loan of KES 100,000 from KADET Ltd. which will be used to buy goats, sheep and cows for slaughter. Samuel's present income is KES 30,000, and he looks forward to using the anticipated profits from his expanded business to improve his agricultural activities. He hopes that in the future he will be the most successful businessman in his village.
