Thomas is 52 years old from Olkalou. He is married to Rachael, who assists him with farm work, and they are blessed with six children, ages 26, 24, 22, 20, 17 and 8 years old.
Thomas is a known farmer in his village, who grows crops, such as wheat, maize, beans, and potatoes for sale. He also plants trees for timber production, and at the same time keeps dairy cows for milk production. To increase milk supplies for maximum profits, Thomas has applied for his fourth loan of KES 50,000 from Kadet Ltd., which he intends to use in buying a dairy cow.
Right now, his monthly income from his business is KES 25,000, and his plan is to use the profits realized from his expanded business to pay his loan back to Kadet Ltd. and construct some rental houses on a plot he owns.
He hope for a brighter future for both his business and family.
