Thaddeus's story

Thaddeus Odhiambo is a 32 year old father of four children - the oldest is 9 and the youngest is 2. Two eligible children are in school. Thaddeus runs two businesses. He ships fish, at a rate of around 200 KSH a day to El Doret (where many of the world famous Kenyan runners train) and has an employee sell fish at the market there. He purchases fish from the OFP fish-factory. Here in Kisumu, Thaddeus transports people on the back of his bike, known here as boda-boda. Asked which business he prefers, Thaddeus said without a doubt he would like to be a full-time fish seller. He is asking for 10,000 KSH to help with both businesses. He says that he believes his future is intertwined with Kiva's.
