A loan of $500 helped to buy flour, cooking fat, and charcoal.

Joseph Samuel Mwangi's story

Joseph K., age 34 years, runs a hotel (restaurant) business at Dagoretti, which is a middle-class estate with a good population. He is married to Jane Ngumbi and together they have two grown-up children, a daughter and a son, aged 26 and 18 years. He was introduced to Kadet by an old Kadet client.

Joseph has been running this hotel for one year and his monthly profit is KES 8000. With the loan of KES 40,000 he will buy flour, cooking fat, and charcoal, and pay the salaries of his three employees. If the loan boosts the business, Joseph plans to buy a gas cooker to make cooking faster in his hotel so as not to delay his customers.

Joseph, who describes himself as hardworking, has a dream of buying a piece of land to build rental houses as well as building his own house.
