A loan of $1,150 helped to expand her business by purchasing shoes for re-sale purposes.


Hellen's story

Hellen is a 46-year-old widow. She supports a family of six people.

To earn a living, she runs a shoe shop in the Kipture trading center. She has been in this line of business for two years. She also does small-scale mixed farming to generate additional income. From these businesses she typically earns a profit of approximately 20,000 KES every month.

She is now seeking a second loan from Kadet. She plans to use 60,000 KES of the 100,000 KES she is seeking to purchase shoes for re-sale; and she would like to use the remaining loan proceeds to pay for her children’s school fees. The profits she expects to generate as a result of the loan will be used to pay for her children’s school fees and to expand her business. Her dream is to expand her business and to educate her children to the highest possible level.
