Francis is 38 years old, married and the father of two children. For the last four years, he has earned a living by running a retail shop where he earns about KES 5,000 a month, all of which he uses to support his family. He is applying for his first loan from KADET LTD, which he learned about from a friend who is a member. He will use the loan to buy more items, including sugar, rice and wheat flour, to sell to his customers. With the additional income made possible by this loan, he plans to go into the business of selling kerosene. His hope is to open a wholesale business and improve his family's living standards.
