John's story

John is a widowed man. He has two children. He describes himself to be focused.

He owns rental houses where he rents out the houses to tenants. He has been involved in this business for over five years. His business is located in a good area and his primary customers are locals.

He will use the KES 100,000 loan to purchase a piece of land. He hopes in the future he will own more rental houses. This is his second loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank. His previous loan was repaid successfully. He will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees for his children.
