About Me

History
About Me
My name is Mrs. Mary Teresah Mzae. I am married to Mr. Elijah Mzae Mwaita and we
are blessed with two daughters and two grand-daughters. We reside in Wundanyi Town
in the coastal part of Kenya. After working as an Executive Assistant in Uap Insurance
Co. Ltd, for 15 years, I took early retirement to join my husband in Ministry at
Wundanyi as a Pastor. I have served together with my husband for over 10 years as a
trainee pastor and leader of the women.

I felt the need to join a college where I would be trained in ministry work so that I can do
it professionally. By God’s grace I was admitted for a diploma course in Christian
Ministry at Scott Christian University based in Machakos which I completed in
November, 2016.

My Business

I am now pursuing a degree course in the same which is costing 4,500 dollars. In my
pursuit of finding how I can raise this money, My sister Ruth Musela introduced
me to Zidisha and after I heard everything about this group, I felt you are the right
people to assist me with a loan to facilitate my studies.

Being a pastor’s wife, I am a leader of over 150 women with different ages, status and
careers. The course I am doing includes Community Development and Child Care. In
order to impact these women, I need to be fully equipped professionally.

Loan Proposal

IN OUR AREA OF RESIDENCE WE DO NOT HAVE PIPED WATER AND NO BOREHOLES. WE DEPEND ON RAIN WATER. AND LATELY WE HAVE EXPERIENCED VERY LONG DROUGHTS WHICH RESULTED IN GOING LONG DISTANCES TO FETCH WATER WHICH AFFECTED LIVESTOCK, POULTRY AND VEGETABLE FARMING THAT I AM INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING AN UNDERGROUND WATER TANK WHICH WILL HOLD 20,000 CUBIC LITRES OF RAIN WATER TO COUNTER WATER SHORTAGE.

IN ADDITION, AS INDICATED IN MY COMMENTS TO THE LENDERS, I WANT TO IMPROVE THE SHADES FOR THE BIRDS AND THE GOATS.
