My name is charles Gitonga. Am a Kenyan from Nyeri county. I currently reside in Nairobi's Umoja estate. I hold a diploma in mass communication and journalism from Nairobi Institute Of Business Studies. I am currently specializing in freelance online journalism.
I am currently working with one of the online writing platforms where I sell feature articles of different categories.Writing has always been in me and that is the reason why I chose this divide of journalism. I Also do research writing and blogging.
The earning I get from my writing has been of utmost help since I have managed to pay the part of my college fees. I am also able to fairly sustain my family and my parents as well.
I am a freelance online writer currently working with iwriter.com. I have been in this job for the past one and a half years now and it has been my source of income all along.
I specialize in writing feature articles meant for different websites.
I also specialize in blogging and affiliate marketing which is also one of the my major sources of income.
In addition, I do academic research. However, I get work from my friend since is do not own an account.
Bearing in mind that websites call for constant updates,feature articles never run out of demand. I actually get special requests from individual website owners who pay me quite well.
I receive my payment on weekly basis. My approximate weekly earning ranges between $120 to $150. This amounts to about $400 monthly. I also get side earnings from my personal blog and academic research as well.
I however wish to diversify my online work by buying my own academic research account. I have actually received several offers from people selling their accounts.
The account I intend to buy is going for $600. It is properly marketed and with constant supply of work. With the account, I will be in a position to hire my own writers for more gains.
Upon getting this loan, I will be in a position to improve my freelance jobs and make more earnings. I intend to buy an academic research account which has been offered to me at $600. It is properly marketed and receives constant supply of projects. It has the capacity to yield more than $1500 in a month.
I have managed to save some amount hence I will add it up with the loan to procure the account right away. The loan will have actually payed the larger part of the amount required for the account. The other part of my savings will help me employ a number of writers to ensure that the account brings in returns as soon as possible.
