Jacob is 29 years and married to Faith, a farmer. He is a father of three children who are 13, 6 and 2, respectively. He earns a living from the sale of tomatoes, which he has been doing for the last four years in Narok market. He learned about Kadet from some women in the market who are already being financed by Kadet Ltd.
He has acquired his first loan of KES 10,000, which he will use to acquire more fresh tomatoes for resale in bulk. Jacob will use the increased proceeds to pay school fees for his children.
Jacob's hope is to expand his stall to a large grocery stall.
