A loan of $475 helped to buy a battery charger.

Simon's story

Simon is 34 years-old, married to Phyllis Gathoniand and they have three school going children. Simon has run his barber shop for two years. He was introduced to Kiva partner KADET by his friend and this will be his first loan. With it, Simon plans to buy a new battery charger, since he uses power from a battery to power the machines he uses.

One day, Simon hopes to open more barber shops around town to increase his level of income and improve his standard of living.
