Simon's story

Simon is now 68 years old, still living happily with his family, and his four children are above 18 years old. Simon is still doing his masonry work and has been in operation for the last 25 years. He is now servicing his ninth loan of KES. 80,000 from KADET LTD, after he repaid the previous one successfully. He intends to use this amount to purchase raw materials to enable him to build more rental houses. The profits achieved will be used to improve the living standards of his family. He hopes for a better living and to own more plots and develop new rentals.
