Francis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy a stock of secondhand shoes for sale.
Francis is a 35-year-old man from Kisumu City and is married to Millicent. They have two children, aged 12 and 8 years. Francis sells secondhand shoes. He has been operating this business for the last 18 years, and makes a monthly income of KES. 20,000. He is now taking his fourth loan from KADET LTD which he will use to buy a stock of secondhand shoes for sale. He plans to save the expected profits in a bank account and also cater for other household expenses. His dream is to open another stall.
