Joseph's story

Joseph is now 41 years old and is still doing well in his businesses. He has started a new business venture for construction of houses, which he will rent. His businesses have been doing well, and he gets a monthly profit increase by almost KES 10,000. He has borrowed a loan of KES 94,500, which he will use to purchase building materials to complete his rental houses. With the anticipated profits, he will pay his children’s school fees and loan repayment, as well as expanding his business. His dream is to give the best to his family as the breadwinner, as well as expand his business to a point he will be financially stable.
