About Me

My name is dorcas nene,i live in kimende subcounty, kiambu county just about 50 kilometers from nairobi town on your way to nakuru, i am aged 26 years with one kid.i have worked with Mr price clotheline as a saleswoman.since i had passion for the bussiness,i decided to start my own business dealing with gents,ladies and children.After working for about three years i had managed to save 50000ksh that i used as capital to start my business.So far my business is doing good since it is in a very busy street just near the stage and this has helped my business to grow in so many ways.

My Business

I have a business where am dealing with new clothes and shoes for gents,ladies and children.due to my location in kimende town,i target the general population of kimende and its neighbouring centres.i have one employee but as my business expands,i hope to add more employees to help with the growing customer base.this also helps create employment.currently am serving 20-30 customers daily depending with season.Thanks alot to Zidisha team,i believe with your financial support,i can achieve my dreams

Loan Proposal

Once I receive the loan,I will add more stock of shoes,both men and ladies,worth 3000 dollars,I will also add more gumboots worth 1000 dollars,due to the ongoing rainy season.I will also add more heavy jackets and sweaters worth 1600 dollars as the weather is cold now.This is highlands and is very cold even when its not rainy season.once I stock ,am expecting an increase in profit hence survival of my business.Am expecting an added profit of 2000 dollars after sales.thanks as you fund my loan.
