Timothy Odhiambo
Timothy O. is a tailor in the Gudcar area of Kisumu. He is married to Mercy Odhiambo and they have five children. Timothy has been a tailor for the last 16 years and has created a huge clientele because he looks for the latest designs. This makes him beat his competitors.

Timothy is looking for a loan through Kadet Ltd to enable him to buy more sewing machines as well as to employ more people in the business to help with the increasing demand for clothes. He also hopes to use the money to buy material for school uniforms since they are in high demand when schools reopen in the month of January.

His future plans and hopes are to expand his business and become the prime supplier of school uniforms in the entire Kisumu region. His children are in college and high school and he intends to educate them to the university level so that they have a better future.
