Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a 46-year-old mother from Migori county. She is married and blessed with three children who are 18, 15 and 12 years old, respectively.

She sells grocery items within the local market, a business she has been doing for the last 14 years, and makes a monthly income of 10,000 Kenyan shillings. She has applied for her third loan with KADET LTD, which she will use to purchase more maize, beans and millet for her stock. She will use the anticipated profit to expand her business.

Her dream is to stabilize the business and support her family.
