Miriam Namaemba
Miriam V. is 40 years old and is from Kakamega town. She is married to Tom V. and they have three children who are still in primary school.

Miriam has applied for two previous loans from KADET and has repaid them well and on time. She is now applying for her third loan and she can testify that the two previous loans enabled her to expand her business.

Miriam started with the salon and as the business grew she then opened a side boutique. This was a wise idea since the clients who come to have their hair done get the chance to try on new outfits and handbags.

Miriam hopes to get Kiva lenders to assist her in buying more clothes, handbags and shoes for her boutique and shampoo, rollers and towels for her salon. She hopes to expand her hairdressing salon to be able to accommodate more clients.
