About Me

My Name is Daniel Obudho, i am a graduate of Economics and sociology. I left employment in 2014. Started very small in business, little capital and support from family. Its not been easy, persistence has kept me going. Due to low funds and bad choices my business has gone through a lot of storms and still stood. i have learnt to be master of all, i diversify a lot.

My Business

i have M-pesa, Equity and Family agency, at the end of the month the agency pay me commissions, i diversify a lot, i have a photocopy machine, a have 5 computers that i use for cyber purposes and i also sell pop corn in my shop. i am situated next to a clinic i plan to stock items such us pampers and item that can be bought by expecting mothers , also want to add cooperative agency. I have employed 3 persons plus my wife. My First born is to join form one next year

Loan Proposal

Want to construct shelves for stocking items like Pampers, Photocopy Rims and packaging bags. An additional staff will be required. My business income will increase since because of further diversification of my sales items.

Income Source

This new business that i intend to do will be an additional business, my major business which is photocopy will help me in clearing the loan while the new Pampas business grows and gets noticed as i market it.

    I Like the way Zidisha System works, its giving us opportunity to give back to the community with the little resources that we have without feeling the pinch. its more blessed-full to give than to receive thus giving us opportunity to share the blessings which flow while giving

    Just very very grateful for the funding, Zidisha is making me soar high and giving me energy to do great business. I am going to buy a TV 43 inches for my new business and fix electricity in my rural home, something that was just a dream Zidisha is making it come true. This is a my new project in my rural area apart from assisting me its going to create job opportunity to 2 new individuals and put bread in their table
