About Me

My name is Hellen Mtawali. I work in the entertainment industry. I spot out upcoming talent in my country and nurture them to be great musicians. I have been able to support upcoming talent however sometimes funds are scarce. Sometimes people whom we have given service do not pay in time. I hope with this loan scheme I can be able to top up and continue nurturing talent as well as buy music equipment for students.

My Business

I am the founder of a music band called AFRIZO VOICES. we sing songs from all over Africa. We provide live band music. .I wish to thank Zidisha for being able to support my work by providing funds that help me grow my business. So far I have been able to buy microphones sound, books and a computer for our DJ with the help of sponsors from zidisha. This has been able to make people hear quality music and so thanks to the Zidisha team. Profits that I make have been used to increase equipment and buy whatever is useful to facilitate the team. More members have joined my music team indicating that positive feedback has been achieved by people loving my music and more members signing in for music training. Thanks to zidisha for enabling me to progress.

Loan Proposal

A bass guitar costs about Ksh 29,000.00 I have been allowed to buy it in instalments. I have already paid 7,000/- for the first instalment and hope zidisha will assist me in the second instalment because I qualify for approximately 9,000/-. I hope my sponsors will expidite this process and help out. Thank you in advance

    Originally scheduled to take four weeks, this loan was paid off after about ten weeks. I enjoy supporting people that have their act together.

    Hellen only received $10 of the $92 she requested. She paid this off with a single payment a week later. I look forward to helping again with such a unique and inspirational business.
