Julius's story

Julius is a 42 year old carpenter. He is married to Sarah, a mixed crop farmer, and they are blessed with 3 children. Julius has been in the carpentry business, with a secondary motorcycle transport business, for the past eleven years, and earns a monthly income of KES 20,000. He is applying for his first loan from KADET LTD after being introduced to the organization by an existing KADET customer. Julius will use most of the money to buy more carpentry materials like timber and saws, and KES 5,000 will go toward fertilizer and seedlings for the farm. With the anticipated profit from the business he will start dairy farming. His hopes and dreams are to educate his children, buy a piece of land, and build rental houses.
