About Me

my name is francis itengo omongoluk and i am interested in your services. I went to kakapel primary school in western Kenya where i completed my primary education. Life was not so easy that time whereby i used to walk several kilometers every morning to school. you can imagine walking that long bear foot with too much cold in my mountain location. My focus in life and hard work propelled me to completing my primary education. I managed to pass well and emerged the first in my school and i went to kolanya boys high school for my secondary education. I worked hard and also managed to complete secondary education. After high school i never wanted to stay idle after lacking money to go to college. I had to look for some job to do to earn a living. I landed a small job in a private security firm and that is what i have been depending upon to support me financially. i saved some money monthly till it was enough to buy some groceries for sale and that is how my small business came up.

My Business

I sell groceries to the people around my locality. I decided to sell groceries because i came to learn that they are the ones on daily use in many households. i chose to deal with these goods because they are readily available all year long in the market. I use some of the profits other house needs and i spare some for business growth.
From the grocery business I have been doing I am glad to say that I discovered a new business opportunity and that is beekeeping. I decided to spare some cash from my business in addition to the loan I received from zidisha and managed to purchase some beehives. I currently have ten beehives in my apiary. With the harvest coming from the beehives I am sure my revenue will increase.

Project Proposal

With this loan I am requesting I intend to add more bee hives to my apiary. I intend to purchase five more beehives. Each beehive costs 50 dollars and the five beehives will total to roughly 250 dollars. Any extra amount will be used for logistics i.e. transportation and installation of the beehives. I am optimistic that this will yield good results that will improve my income.

    With this loan loan I will purchase 5 beehives at a cost of 5000/50USD. This will increase my revenue once they are colonised. Thanks so much for your support.

    With the loan i just finished repaying i managed to increase the number of my beehives by five. This purchase has made a big difference in my business whereby my income has increased. The additional hives once colonized will give me an increase of up to USD100 every month. I will use the increase in earning to continue restocking my apiary.

    With the loan i just concluded repaying, i managed to purchase beehives and used the remainder for fencing the apiary area. this has made a difference because my income base has kept on increasing. In the next few months when the harvest matures i will have more money flowing in. My earning currently has increased by close to 2%. I still use the increased earning to improve the condition of my apiary.

    With the loan that I have just finished paying, I managed to purchase some beehives for my newfound business opportunity. This has had an impact on my business such that my revenue flow is increasing due to the sale of honey.
    I can say that my earnings have increased by up to 10% and I am optimistic that it will continue to increase even more.

    I am changing the installment amount because what I expected did not materialize as per my expectations. The current state of the pandemic is really hard to predict what comes next. My revenue is still below what I used to get. I am still committed to completing repaying the remaining amount. If I will succeed earlier I will not hesitate to clear the balance. Thanks in advance.
