KADET

If you read my blog before I left for Kenya, this section would have been all about K-MET, the microfinance institution where I was originally placed. For a variety of reasons, my placement at K-MET has been pushed back until January, and instead I am living in Nairobi where I am thrilled to be working with another one of Kiva’s partner microfinance institutions, KADET.

KADET was established in 2000 to provide effective credit inter-mediation and economic empowerment through business support for remote communities. KADET’s mission is to professionally provide financial services to low-income entrepreneurs, thereby contributing to poverty reduction by supporting small and micro enterprises to promote justice. With headquarters in Nairobi, KADET also has branches throughout the country in order to better reach its borrowers.  I will be traveling throughout Kenya given that many of the loans and programs KADET conducts are located in rural areas and in other parts of the country.
