About Me

My name Milka Cherotich I come from a small village called Kapcheprotwa in Bomet County. I am a first born in a family of 10 including my parents,am also a single mom of a daughter.My childhood growing in this village was very interesting until when I finished schools when the real challenges of life began I finished my form four,then finished my college education where I pursued Business administration & management there the job search began but there were no jobs so I decided to start my own business.

My Business

I started my hotel business in another neighborhood county of Kericho ,the business was booming since I sold cheap available foods for middle class customers,my income I used to pay my rent both for the hotel and the house we lived in with my daughter,pay school fees for my daughter and meet other business expenses and managed to save a little but this didn't go on for long when the site I operated my business became no business zone several stalls were destroyed there by the county government, I took a break for a while in business until I recently ventured in poultry farming which I am currently working on it.

Loan Proposal

with the previous loan i bought chairs. and on this coming loan I will increase more chairs to rent in this festive season so the loan of usd 100 will enable me add more 20 chairs to the business. the price of one chair is usd 5 and the less amount I will add to ensure that I buy 20 of them. with the income of this festive season I will pay fees for my daughter.

    Hi! my dear lenders,let me take this opportunity to thank you once again for the loan which you gave me.It really helped me ,I added more chairs to my hotel & my customers are now comfortable because before they had to wait for a vacant seat & others had to leave thus I was a looser my sales ve increased by (ksh.500)per day & I ve been able to pay my daughter's school fees & save some remaining amount am glad I ve achieved this & I believe to achieve more in the future with the support of Zidisha.We also had a happy & busy holiday full of different celebrations & functions whereby there was scarcity of chairs to be used in those functions.Due to that since I ve added more chairs I ve plan to purchase other necessary materials which go together with the chairs when people need to hire.Am sorry I cann't upload a photo now but ll send it later. Thank you so much my lenders & all the Zidisha team.
