Am a single mum of a 13 year old boy in class 8 and due to sit for the National Exam in November and proceed to high school God willing come next year . Am currently living in Section 58 with my mum after my dad passed on in 2002, where I also do my business. I went to Christ The King High school and later to Mohanlal Sukhadia University.I ventured into business out of passion to empower the youth. Am hoping that with Zidisha support am able to upgrade my computers to TFTs since I have the old models, to own a scanner, bidding machine, a photocopy machine and also grow and own my shop to be a bookshop too someday.
I started my cyber cafe business in 2007 at section 58 after i had searched for a job for a long time with no success.My main aim was to help youthful job seekers prepare for job interviews by helping them write their CVs,resume,job application letters,research work,thesis and article writing among others.I have 5 desk top computers and one employee who helps me out.On a good day I make up to Kshs. 3000 after deducting overheads,utilities and internet.The reason I joined Zidisha is because of the need to see my business grow to another level where I can buy more computers and get a bigger space for my business
I will use the loan to purchase a binding machine along with a scanner machine which go hand in hand with my current busy line of working which I will use it to bind books for my customers, and also projects for the university students who are going far places to do binding and scanning too. The binding machine will change my business by 50% of the money I was getting per month. I am looking forward for Lenders who will lend me the amount since I need to raise of Ksh. 15,000 so that I can purchase the binding machine and scanner machine too.
