Julia is 39 years old, married and the mother of five children. For the last 15 years, she has earned a living by selling farm produce in Mpeketoni, Lamu. She earns a monthly profit of 12,000 Kenyan shillings (KES).
Julia was introduced to KADET Ltd. by a credit officer and is applying for her sixth loan of 25,000 KES to buy seeds, some fertilizer and other farm inputs needed for her business. She will use the profits made possible by this loan to pay school fees for her children as well as expand her farming activities. Her goal for the future is to venture into mixed farming with a view to increasing her income so as to help improve her family's living standards.
