Janet's story

Janet is a 35-year-old business lady. She is a single mother of two children. She has been selling secondhand clothes for the past five years with a monthly income of KES 15,000, which she uses to support her family. She is applying for her first loan from KADET LTD after being introduced to it by an existing KADET customer. Janet will use the loan to buy stock of clothes. With the anticipated profit from the business, she will educate her children. Her hopes and dreams are to rent a house and sell her clothes without walking around.
