Reuben, a modest and hardworking 44-year-old from Kakamega County, Western Kenya, is married to Beatrice and they have three children between the ages of 10 and 20. Reuben runs an open-air stall selling household items such as washing basins, water taps, charcoal stoves, water drums and many other household items demanded by his clientele. In this business for the last 18 years, he earns a monthly income of Kshs 17,500.

Now requesting his sixth loan of Kshs 65,000 from Kadet Ltd, Reuben will use the money to purchase more household items to sell and will reinvest the profits into his business and repay his loan. His dream is to open a shop where he can sell from a closed rather than an open-air environment.
