Lucy is 57 years old, is widowed and lives in a place called Lower Kabete, which is off the capital city, Nairobi. She is a farmer and does crop farming. She has been farming for 10 years now and has been successful. This is her primary business, and now she wants to buy some seedlings, fertilizers and manure for the next planting season.

She was introduced to KADET LTD by an existing member and this is her third loan with KADET. She has not borrowed from other financial institutions apart from KADET.

Lucy hopes that with this loan her trade will expand and she will be able to supply farm produce to the neighboring area of Wangige and the capital city of Nairobi.

She also desires to open a green house in future.
