A loan of $125 helped to buy more foodstuffs for his kiosk.


Vincent's story

Vincent is 39. He and his wife Nancy are from the Kwisero area of Kakamega County and have three children between the ages of twelve and eight.

Vincent operates a small retail shop selling basic household items like sugar, cooking fat, and detergents. He has been engaged in this business for the last two years and makes a monthly income of 10,000 Kenyan shillings (KES). He is taking his second loan from KADET Ltd. which he intends to use to buy some stock for his retail shop, mostly foodstuffs.

Nancy is also engaged in business.

Vincent will use the profits to pay back his loan. His dream is to open a wholesale shop where he can stock a variety of household items. He is therefore looking for a Kiva lender to help him realize this dream.
