About Me

My mom always told me that I was a crazy child. Now growing up and looking back I sort of was. The things that I would do to get what I wanted. They weren’t bad things but it was things that any kid would do. But I think I grew out of it now I just say whatever and turn around. My childhood was a little crazy and wild. In our culture marrying of many wife is still practiced up to nowadays.

My Business

I have a shop where I sell soft drinks such as soda. This business has a high demand and can make a good profit. My typical cost is about $300. I use profit to pay for house and food. Also I take care of my siblings by paying them a school fees. Here in Kenya employment has been challenging so this business has been the best kind of employment earning me an income.

Loan Proposal

I will use this loan to build a temporary structure shade for my business. This shade will add up to the existing one to create a large space for the customers. This move will increase my income by double. I will buy iron sheets that will cost about $150 then use the remaining $10 to buy timber and for construction.
