Simel is an industrious gentleman, age 27, married, and supporting a family of six members.

He learned about Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) from other farmers in his area who are already registered and being funded by KADET. Simel is a maize farmer and has been in the business for the last seven years, earning an income of KES 15,000.

Simel has acquired his first loan of KES 30,000 which will assist him in the purchase of fertilizer for his growing crops. He hopes to use the increased proceeds to be able to farm a bigger portion of his land.
