About Me

i am the 6th in a family of 13 children. after high school level i decided to pursue my destiny by refusing to pursue medicine as my parents suggested thus i followed the path of doing numbers as in i loved mathematics and thus i pursed anything that requires calculation and coming up with a desirable figure. in that passion i have pursued accountancy and i am through with all level of certified public accountants. i am pursuing a degree on the same. i am married to an accountant who also chose to join Kenya army and we are blessed with baby girl now two (2) years.

My Business

i have established a firm whereby i offer auditing, accounting, consultancy and agency services to the public. i have been working under senior auditors to gain experience which i have gained and i decided to start my own firm.
before the aforesaid addition i have been running a small business whereby i stock stationary and supply to my customers within and without Nanyuki town. i also own photocopier and computers to undertake photocopying and typesetting work. i have acquired substantial clientele that sustains my business and puts food on my table.
the business stands on its own whereby there is a good profit margin it maintains after payment of salaries, bills and rents.
out of the said business i was able to establish an office for consultancy and agency related services.

Project Proposal

i am running a business whereby i stock stationery materials which i sell at a retail price to my customers.
demand has increased which calls for an increase in the available stock so that i can meet the increasing demand for my customers.
i am sourcing for this loan to increase the stock.

    It was a success project in that my stock is increased and I am able to supply my clients sufficiently.
