About Me

I was born in 1985 in Kiambu County.I started my primary education in the year 1992 at Kanyore primary School up to year 1999.In the year 2000,i joined Mukuyu Secondary school up to year 2004.In 2005,i joined Thika Technical training Institute where i studied Certificate in Mechanical Engineering.I joined Jua Kali sector in 2008 up to the year 2010.I left Jua Kali sector in 2011 and started a small kiosk from the loan i took from Kambaa Commercial Agencies and the savings i had.I am happily married and blessed with a 1 year old lovely daughter.

My Business

My shop consists of household goods and foodstuffs ie;flour,rice,cooking fat,sugar,beverages (soda,juices)soaps and detergents etc.My neighborhood is growing very fast,and there are no many shops around therefore making the demand of some goods very high.Most customers prefer my kiosk since its always open and the prices are affordable therefore making it difficult for me to satisfy their needs.When approved,your loan will help me to add more stock and be able to serve my customers needs while making more profit.

Loan Proposal

Dear lenders and the entire Zidisha team;i greet you all and its my hope you are very grateful for your support and the quickest way you fund my loans. my previous loan was very successful,i managed to purchase all that i had planned for,the business has picked on a very positive note,despite some challenges here and there.the main challenge is in supply since the main deport gives way for those with large amount of cylinders leaving me with no option than to rely on those distributors who supplies to us only once a week,this makes it difficult to sustain all of my customers.if offered this loan will help me add more cylinders hence making it easier to serve my customers and making more profit.
