A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase more maize, beans, and dry peas for resale.


Salina's story

Salina is a 55-year-old married woman blessed with three children aged between 14 to 30 years. Salina runs a cereals store and has been in operation for eight years. The business brings in a monthly income of 12,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES).

This is her third loan of 100,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES) from KADET Ltd. after successfully repaying her previous loans. She'll use the loan to purchase more maize, beans and dry peas for resale. She'll use the profits gained to pay school fees for her children.

Her hope is that her business does well so that she can venture into a large-scale cereals selling business.
