Lucy's story

Lucy is 53 years old, and a business lady. She is still practicing mixed crop farming as her primary business, and for the past one and half years with a monthly income of KES 50,000 which she uses to support her family. Lucy is applying for her second loan with KADET LTD after repaying the previous loan successfully.

She is very happy and grateful to KADET LTD and Kiva Lenders for the financial support. She made a profit out of her business, added savings she had accumulated, and she was able to start a retail shop, which is doing well.

She will use the loan to buy flour, sugar and stationery as stock for her shop. With the anticipated profit from the business she will empower her children with education. Her hopes and dreams are to open a wholesale shop.
