About Me

I am an entrepreneur , a nutritionist by training. I have worked variously formally and informally. I run a start up called Glofha general supplies and a women empowerment group called kaleluya women self help group. Besides this I run a business of money transfer and rental units which I have been slowly progressing thanks to Zidisha.
I come from a very humble back ground but discipline , hard work and honesty has really shaped my life and blessed my fortunes.

My Business

I run a dairy farm now with 2 Fresian cows which calved in Dec , I sell milk and use that for feed and save the rest. I equally farm maize and beans and other vegetables in a 2 acre piece of land .
I have rental units that give me a regular monthly income that support me and my family.

Loan Proposal

I am going to add more stock to my pub this being a festive season the demand is likely going to increase and we want to meet the needs of the customers. A crate of beer goes for a range of 38 to 40 dollars, spirits vary in brands from 25-40dollars a carton.
Having enough is very important. ..as it's going to boost my business and also allowing the customers the comfort to order what they want anytime they want.
For the particular season I expect an 80% increase in sales and therefore will make reasonable profit .
