About Me

I was born in 1976, a seventh born of the late Joseph Raya and Rachel Umazi. I started my nursery education at Jomo Keyata Nursery School Mazeras in 1980 to 1982 when I joined Mazeras Primary from 1983 to 1990. After doing my kcpe exam, my father had no money to take me to high school. I started selling fish but it was not doing well. I joined Mariakani Polytechnic for electrical and electronics courses in 1993 to 1994. After that, I went to attachment at Mombasa doing motor rewinding and electrical installation. After that, I worked at Ashton Apparel doing electrical maintenance. The salary of KSh 3500 per month was not enough, so I decided to open my workshop which is doing well. We grow coconut trees and that is doing well. My first born wants to be a journalist; the second one wants to be a pilot. After work, I like listening to old Congo music, helping my wife cooking, and teaching my children how to cook delicious food.

My Business

I repair electronics and electrical appliances such as: TVs, DVD players, radios, iron boxes, fans, etc. I also sell them secondhand. I also am doing house electrical installation. I sell secondhand appliances because they have affordable prices for my customers. I chose this kind of business because it doesn't need huge capital and has a good profit. I get a minimum profit of KSh 30,000 and a maximum profit of KSh 60,000 a month. I use this money for food, medical, and school fees for my children. I also increase stock.

Loan Proposal

Am leaving in my fathers house so I want to build my own house I want to buy building materials I want to by 4 lorries of building stones at 55$ each. I will be having my own house enough space for my family and I.
