Stephen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase firewood and pay employees.
Stephen is 55 years old, married to Esther Chelagat, and has seven children aged 32, 28, 25, 20, 17, 15 and seven years old. He makes bricks in Chepterit and has been in operation for a period of three years getting a monthly income of 15,000 Kenyan shillings (KES). He has taken out his first loan from KADET Ltd. of 20,000 KES and intends to use it to purchase firewood and pay wages to the labourers he hires when preaparing the bricks. The profits will be used to educate his children. He hopes to have a happy family which is well cared for.
