Jane Mweni's story

Jane Mueni, age 36, runs a retail shop at Mlolongo, which is a busy market. She sells her goods to the residents and customers on transit from Machakos town to Nairobi city. She is a single mother of three children, Annastacia aged 17 years in form 1, Stephen aged 15 years in class seven and Dominic aged 12 years in class six. She was introduced to KADET by another KADET client.

Jane has been running this business for a period of two years and gets a monthly profit of Kshs 2500. This loan of Kshs 20,000 is her second loan with KADET after serving the previous loan well. She intends to use Kshs 10,000 to buy sugar, Kshs 5,000 to buy rice and Kshs 5,000 will be used to buy other small goods like matchboxes e.t.c. If the loan boosts the business, Jane will start selling ballast and sand for a higher profit.

Jane, who describes herself as hardworking and focused, dreams of having a wholesale business and selling ballast and sand to building people.
