Maingi's story

Maingi W., 50 years old, runs a tailoring shop in Kwa Njenga, which is a slum area. He is married to Doris and they have three children aged 19, 16, and 13 years. He was introduced to Kadet by existing customers.

Maingi has been running this business for three years, and his monthly profit is Kshs 18000. With the loan, he plans to buy fabrics for making clothes. If the loan boosts the business he will open another tailoring shop in another town and employ more tailors.

Since all of Maingi's children are in shool and require school fees, he dreams of opening a tailoring training school in his shop so as to earn more profit. This will help him to better meet his family's needs. He describes himself as ambitious.
