Reuben O. is 60 years old and lives in the town of Emuhaya in the Vihiga district. He is married to Agnes O. and they have five children, all of whom have graduated from high school except their youngest, who is eight years old.

For the last 34 years, he has operated a store in the town market. Having repaid a previous loan from our organization, Kadet Ltd., he has applied for a new one to buy more items to sell, including sugar, fat, tissue paper, soaps and soft drinks. His customers live in the surrounding community or go to local schools.

In the future, Reuben hopes to establish a milk-processing business whose profits will allow him to send his children to college.
