About Me

:Jane wambui kabugo
Nationality : Kenyan
Sex : female
Status :Married
Age :26
Phone no. :0722914775
Locality : Nakuru county, Gilgil district,miti mingi location, miti mingi village.
Am married to Joseph kabugo. We have two sons. First born in class seven and second in class three.

My Business

After marriage i decided to start a business to uplift my familys living standard. I have a cosmetics shop and some of my wears include hair waves, shampoo shoes and oils. After runnning the business for three years i have been able to buy a cow, furnitures, a piece of land besides affording my kitchen items.I have been able to assist my husband financially to build a two roomed house. So far my business is doing well but not without challenges. The recent tribal clushes and persistant drought that lasted for two years had negative effect on my customers purchasing power. Sales were down for a period streching to mid this year. With anticipated high harvest this season, i have a slightly high than normal flow of customers.

Loan Proposal

I appreciated alot with the previous loan you offered me.
I want to buy a cow worthy 150,000 and I want to sell the one I have at home since its old. The cow I want is a fresian cow which wil give me thirty litres of milk per day that why i want the maximum and i will add the rest to maintain the cow. thanks in advance

    How are things going ?

  • Jane Wambui Kabugo     Sep 22, 2014

    hi zidisha, am very sorry as i have not made my current repayment. this is due to the school fees i had to make for my two sons in secondary and primary school. i assure zidisha that i will make the repayment early october that is repayment for august and september. best regards. Jane Kabugo

    • ShaneS     Sep 23, 2014

      Hi Jane, thanks for the update. You have a very good repayment history and I personally have no problem with you needing a little bit longer for the occasional payment, especially if you need the money for your boys' education. Good luck with your business and I hope the boys are enjoying school and doing well.

  • Namaste250     Sep 4, 2014

    Hi Jane,
    I am glad to hear your son is doing better. You have been doing a great job on getting payments in. Thank you. I can say as a lender, It is more important to spend the money on the hospital then pay back the loan. I'm sure you will make up the August payment soon.
    Best wishes for healthy and prosperity for your family and your businesses, Ann

  • Jane Wambui Kabugo     Sep 4, 2014

    Hello, my name is Traci Yoshiyama, Zidisha’s Kenya Client Relationship Manager. I am currently residing in Mugaa, visiting Zidisha borrowers in nearby villages.

    “I’m very hard working,” says Jane Wambui without a tinge of boastfulness, but rather a sense of pride. Rightfully so, Jane is 27 years old and already a successful businesswoman, not to mention a mother of two. Jane and her husband own a kinyozi (salon) and a produce stall in Miti Mingi. As Jane and I speak from her stall, we peer across the street at the kinyozi where we can see her husband cutting the hair of a young gentleman. In another minute, Jane gets a customer wanting to buy bananas, evidence that their two businesses are thriving.

    Jane is an experienced Zidisha member, already repaying her 2nd loan. She comments on how she finished repaying her first loan 4 months early, and she anticipates following this example for her second. The creation of her family’s kinyozi was possible because of Zidisha. Through her first loan of Ksh 50,000, Jane was able to rent a space, buy all the necessary machinery (i.e. shavers, razors), stock her store with hair products and shoes, and even buy two batteries that enable her shop to stay open during the frequent power outages. While her husband is in charge of styling the men, Jane takes care of the children haircuts when not working at her produce stall. We have all heard of children being fearful of haircuts, with scissors too close for comfort and strange noises and smells permeating the air. Jane gestures towards her face, implying this is the answer to their haircut jitters. Although both Jane and her husband have no formal training in barbering, she explains to me that, “some courses come from the heart”. To further prove how hard working she is, Jane speaks about her two cows, one of which was bought with her second Zidisha loan. With the milk from her cows, she is able to make Ksh 15,000 a month, which then assists in paying for school fees (both boys are in boarding schools) and rent for her kinyozi.

    Upon leaving, Jane reaches for a banana, the ripest of the bunch, and gives it to me as a gift. Refusing to take my money, she makes me promise to visit again, even extending an invitation to her home. As I make my 6km descent home, I think about Miti Mingi, one of the smallest villages I have seen in Kenya, but filled with people possessing the biggest of hearts.

    Hi Jane! I hope everything goes well for you with this loan. I also have dairy cows here in the U.S. Hopefully the Fresian will give you a lot of milk!!

  • Jane Wambui Kabugo     Feb 28, 2012

    Hi Julia! I Jane Kabugo has cleared my first loan balance.Am thankful for the loan you gave to me which was very helpful to me.It has rearly uplifted my business.I would like to apply for the second loan of 150,000 kenyan shillings of which I want to buy a freshian cow which costs 120,000 kenyan shillings. The 30,000 kenyan shilling will be for feeding and maintaining the health of the cow for great produce.Am now stable with my business thus hoping for a positive response.Thanks in advance Julia the Director zidisha organization. Jane Kabugo.

    Hello lenders,

    My name is Achintya Rai

    On the 1st of February I visited Jane Wambui at her premises to see her at work and to talk to her. I found her at her shop where she sells vegetables and fruits that she grows mostly on her own Shamba (farm). She was dressed in smart slacks and a white t-shirt and greeted me with a firm handshake (this I found to be true for all women here- their hand-shakes are always full-bodied and firm- showing confidence and also warmth).
    Jane appears to be quite enterprising. She, like most Kenyans, has a very strong desire to improve her lot and works really hard to make sure she and her family have the best that is possible.
    She used the Zidisha loan and some of her own money to buy a good breed of cow. The cow cost her around 60,000 shillings (her loan was for 45,000 shillings), but gives around 20 liters of milk per day (at peak capacity), which translates to a revenue of around 15,000 shillings from the cow. She spends 5,000 on the cow and the remaining 10,000 shillings are her profit.
    She has sent her two sons to boarding schools because she feels the quality of education is much better there. She told me that she paid the fee of 51,000 shillings for one of her sons and 28,000 shillings for the other. This appears quite steep to me, but she wants to make sure her children get the best education and will not compromise on this. She told me she wants one of the sons to be a lawyer and the other to be a doctor. I couldn't help feeling admiration for her.

    With her next loan she wants to buy an even better cow. This would cost around 120,000 Kenyan Shillings but would give 40-50 liters of milk per day.

    When I said bye to her, she offered me a banana, which was very nice and sweet of her.
