A loan of $500 helped to buy more flour and cooking oil to sell to her customers.

Annah Wavinya's story

Annah M. is 47 years old, married and has six children who range in age from 29 to 15. For the last 12 years, she has made a living by running a retail shop where she sells food items such as maize flour and cooking oil. She earns about KES. 50,000 a month.

Annah has a very good repayment history with KADET LTD, and has applied for a new loan to buy more items to sell to her customers. She hopes to continue growing her business and buy a vehicle which will allow her to transport her goods to other markets and earn enough money to provide all of her children with a top-quality education.
