A loan of $400 helped to purchase men's clothing and new shoes.

Violet's story

Violet has had her retail business for 10 years. She is a 35-year-old single mother with three children, ages 13, 11 and 5. In her shop, she sells new clothing for women and children as well as secondhand curtains for the home. She also sells new shoes for men in her store. Violet's business is located in Kapsabet town. She operates her business from a shop made from cement. Her sister also uses this shop for her tailoring business.

This is Violet's first loan with KADET. She has never had a loan before and was introduced to KADET by an existing client. She is taking out a loan of 30,000 Kenyan shillings. With her loan, Violet plans to purchase curtains worth 25,000 shillings and use the remaining funds to purchase new men's clothing and shoes to add to the stock in her store. In the future, Violet wants to own a wholesale business that sells curtains, new clothes and shoes.
