About Me

I am Farida Hadi but born Veronica Wangari. I was born in a christian family and later married a Muslim man where I converted to Islam. My husband later died and left me behind with four children. Two of these children are now grown ups and two are still in school.

I support my family by running a shoe shop which is just next to my house. I sell new and used shoes to the members of my community. I like my job because it gives me my daily bread and through it, I have been able to educate and feed my children.

My Business

As mentioned above, I sell shoes from my outlet as a retailer. I get my stock from bit stores in town and then retail them at a small profit. In a good day, I can sell ten pairs of shoes where my profit can be as high as USD 20. However, this fluctuates depending on the date and season and it can go as low as USD 2 in a day.

I hope to keep increasing my stock until I transform my shop into a big store where I will be able to serve more people. This is the main reason that I have joined Zidisha.

Loan Proposal

Just like the previous loans, I will use this money to buy more stock of shoes. I will buy more stock of children's shoes since what I have is almost depleted. This will ensure that I will have a continuous flow of clients. I hope this new stock will increase my daily sales and give me more profit.

Thank you for your continuous support.
