A loan of $700 helped to buy bananas.


Michael's story

Michael is 53 years old, married to Grace. He has a business of selling bananas at wholesale which he has operated for the past 27 years.

He has applied for his third loan from KADET Ltd. to enable him buy more bananas. He paid his previous loan on time and hopes this anticipated profit will enable him build rental houses in his plot.

This is Michael's dream for the near future.
