Lydia O. is 27-years-old. She is single and the mother of one child, aged four. She has a cereal store that she has been running for the last six years on a busy street in Narok Town.

She learned about KADET from other women who are already registered as clients. This will be her second loan. She is planning to increase her stock of maize. With the profits she hopes to make from the proceeds of this loan, she plans to open another shop and create employment for other people. Also this being the season for harvesting maize and wheat, she is hoping to buy more stock to sell later when the price and demand are high.

Her future dream is to be able to build her own store and her own house. Lydia believes she is hard working and only needs the resources to attain her goals.
