About Me

I am Emmanuel Jua aged 29years. I grew up in Embu which is on the slopes of mt kenya. I schooled in the neighbouring county in high school and managed to get a grade to take me to tertiary education. enrolled in chuka university for a degree in commerce. having an entrepreneur mindset and from the push of need I took a loan with zidisha in 2015 and a few borrowing from friends and was able to start a cyber while in my 2nd year of study. since then I've regularly borrowed from zidisha with a good repayment schedule and credit score and was able to grow the cyber. it assisted me alot to earn day to day living in the university. I was able to graduate in 2017 and from then I was able to employ some two other people. I'm grateful to zidisha this far and I look forward to a more mutual beneficial business relationships.

My Business

I run a cyber cafe located within the university whereby I have two printers. a kyocera taskalfa and an Epson coloured printer. I have two desktops and now wish to expand by adding five more desktops to broaden my customer base. this will see me grow the day to day profit and this will be a plus to me and also to the community since I will have brought services closer to them

Loan Proposal

I will invest a quarter of the loan to buy fertilizer and seedlings for the tomatoes farming since planting is early September. Then the remaining amount I will invest in the already in existence unripe banana buying and selling to large malls so that I can boost my sales . I also want to expand to take school tender to supply schools with the bananas. I look forward for a large business area which will allow me to buy a vehicle of my own to easier transportation. Thanks to zidisha for the earlier funding. I so much appreciate
