Alice is 50 years old and the mother of six children, all of whom are currently studying in school. For the last four years, she has earned a living by operating a bicycle repair shop in Mpeketoni, Lamu, where she earns a monthly profit of 17,000 KES.

Alice was introduced to KADET by a credit officer and she is applying for her fourth loan of 60,000 KES to purchase additional tools and equipment such as spanners (wrenches), wheel tubes, lubricants and so on for her business.

She will use the profit from the business to pay for school fees for her children, purchase food for the family and expand the current business. Alice hopes to own her own car garage in future so as to improve her family's financial stability.
