Lucy, a 53-year-old mixed crop farmer for the past 10 years, is married to John, also a farmer, and they have been blessed with three children. She earns a monthly income of KES 10,000 which she uses to support her family.

Having been introduced to KADET by an existing KADET customer, Lucy is requesting her first loan to buy manure and seedlings for her farm. With the anticipated profit from the business, she will venture into pig-keeping.

Her hopes and dreams are to buy a piece of land and build rental houses which will help her improve her family's standard of living.
