Godfrey Wasonga's story

Godfrey Wasonga O. was born in 1984 and is 26 years old. He is married to Lillian Owingu and they don't have any children. They live in the Mapera area in the outskirts of Migori town.

Godfrey has been running his shop for the past three years and has seen his business grow through the years. He was introduced to KADET, a Kiva partner, by a friend. He wants to borrow 80,000 Kenyan shillings to enable him to buy some sugar, flour, soft drinks and other foodstuffs to add to his shop. His shop is in Mapera market, approximately 7km from Migori town. The market serves as a meeting point of three small towns that neighbor it, which makes him have a big clientele.

He hopes in the next few years, he will be able to open a supermarket and also employ people to enable him to run this business.
