Fredrick is 30 years old and he is from Nakuru. He is married to Erinah and they are blessed with two children, ages 8 and 6.

Fredrick has been running a blacksmith business for the last 10 years. To enable him to buy more raw materials such as scrap metal so he can make frying pans, cooking pots and chicken feeding troughs, Fredrick has applied for his third loan of KES 72,000 from VisionFund Kenya.

His monthly income right now is KES 50, 000 and he has plans of using the anticipated profits from his expanded business to educate his children and to pay back his loan to VisionFund Kenya.

In the future, Fredrick hopes to be the main distributor of frying pans, cooking pots and chicken feeding troughs in his area.
