Geoffrey's story

Geoffrey is 26 years old. For the last three years, he has earned a living by selling goods at his general store in Malindi. He earns a monthly profit of 17,000 KES (Kenyan shillings).

Geoffrey was introduced to KADET LTD by a credit officer, and is applying for his second loan of 35,000 KES to buy additional stock for his shop such as cooking oil, washing powder, soft drinks and maize flour to sell to his customers.

He will use the profits made possible by this loan to pay school fees for his nephew as well as expand his business. His goal for the future is to continue growing the business so that he may be financially stable.
