Video: Kenyan mountaintops is where wonderful inspirations live

Jenny Jin, KF 11- Kenya, KADET

In Kabarnet, a town situated on the mountain tops of Western Kenya, I spent a day with Irene, a credit officer, to meet KADET’s client groups living in this area. At the end of the day, I was tired but happy from all the people I had the pleasure to meet. One young woman, at the young age of 28, was earning less than $2 a day and supporting 8 orphan children in addition to her own two kids.  Wow!

Towards the end of our last meeting with a women’s group, one of the clients, Albina, gave an impromptu and inspired speech. I took a video of the last portion of Albina’s speech (check out the captions if the audio’s hard to hear):

And at the end of the meeting the group bade us thanks and farewell through a jolly prayer traditional to their tribe.  This was the second time that I heard this prayer, as the group earlier that day also sent us off with the same blessings and loads of laughters.  The hospitality of each and every KADET client that I meet never ceases to blow me away.

Jenny Jin is very close to wrapping up her Kiva Fellowship at KADET (Kenyan Agency for the Development of Enterprise and Technology) and is a member of the KADET Lending team.
