George Kiura's story

George N. is a 37-year-old married man with two children. His primary business is showing videos and satellite TV in a small theater, and he and his wife also have a bread-distribution business. He has been in the business for eight years and is currently making a profit of about 11,500 Kenyan shillings ($150 U.S.) a month.

George was introduced to KADET by the chairman of the KADET borrowing group he joined. George's business is situated in an area with a high population of young people who like watching football on DSTV. He would like to use his loan to expand his video showroom to accommodate more viewers who are growing in numbers. He hopes to open a hardware business in the future.
