Pamela Aoko's story

Pamela Aoko is a 36-year-old married lady with three children aged 14, 12 and 7. Her husband Agripa who is 40 years old is a teacher by profession. Pamela operates a boutique and salon, a business she has been in for the last nine years in the heart of Kisumu City.

She is among the first clients who joined KADET since its inception in Kisumu. She learnt about KADET through World Vision, the mother organization where she was a volunteer. She later on left KADET after her first loan to go to college and returned when she completed her college education.

Pamela started her business by selling ladies' clothes in an open air market, before she moved to the stall. She currently has two employees who assist her in the salon business.

This is her third loan from KADET and she hopes to use this money to purchase beauty chemicals, new shoes, bags and children's wear in readiness for the festive season when she expects her sales will go up.

She aspires to open a wholesale boutique shop.
