A loan of $250 helped to purchase additional farming inputs for his business.

Raymond's story

Raymond is 54 years old, married and a father of six children. For the last four years, he has earned a living by selling farm produce in Malindi. He earns a monthly profit of 5,000 KES. Raymond was introduced to KADET LTD., by our credit officer, and is applying for his second loan of 20,000 KES, to buy seeds, some fertilizer and other farm inputs needed for his business.

He will use the profits made possible by this loan to pay school fees for his children as well as to expand his farming activities. His goal for the future is to venture into mixed farming with a view of increasing his income so as to help improve his family's living standards.
