About Me

I am Leonard Musungu Isalano, aged 45 born in 1973 at Mungavo Village, Serem Sub- location, Shamakhokho Location, Hamisi Sub-County, Vihiga County- Western Kenya. We were born 10 children and our father was jobless and due to poverty in our family, I could not aford to continue with my school and I dropped from school as a result.

Our land is too rocky of which even food is not enough for us and I was foced to go and be employed to take care of my neighbor cattle of which I managed to raise small money to buy shaving machine and began barber shop at Seremi market.

My children need to have agood education to enhance them to have a better future than mine.

I think if you support me with a loan of 453 US dollars then I will manage to expand my business with sodas and buy salon equipments. I therefore kindly request for you to lend me with the above money.

My Business

I run a barber business and sell sodas. My business began very small and is enabling me to pay school fees for my children and buy them food but just struggling. I kindly request for a loan to sustain my business. Thank you sir for your generous response. Waiting to receiving from you.

Project Proposal

Iam Leonard Musungu Isalano, born in Western Kenya, Vihiga county. I was born in a poor family of eight. Being the first born of our family, the Life was too hard for us to manage. My father and Mum didn't have a job but they stragled very hard in order to get us food and pay school fees us. I thank God I completed my primary school education from class one to class eight. When I joined secondary school, things got worse and due to lack of school fees, I did not complete my secondary education. So the situation forced me to work for our neighbours in order to assist my parents and my little brothers. I was saving little as I can. After one year I bought one shaving machine and opened a small barbar shop in our village. Due to the growing number of customers, I saw a need to expand my business. So I will appreciate if you assist me with some cash so that I can add more shaving machine, buy blow dry and other equipment. Thus: 3 new shaving machine at ksh. 7 thousands each, 2 blow dry at ksh.5 thousands each. The remaining balance I will buy braids. Thanks in advance.
