About Me

am Anthony Maina a Kenyan .I was born in the year 1977, out of wedlock, I have passed many difficulties during my education which I had to work as a casual labourer to earn some amount to cater for school fees and by academic staffs such as text books.I completed form 4 in 1995 and attained a grade C of 49 points. since I had no one to cry to I had to locate in Nairobi where I worked in companies as a casual labourer then a good Samaritan who is a deceased now introduced me some friends who assisted me.Then I moved to Chuka town(Tharaka nithi )Kenya where I was employed as a night guard and got some cash where I began a small business as a business is doing well that makes me happy as I see my family first born died when young in the year 2002,then my second born murdered in 2010,I only have one child Seth Munene whom I love most and tells me that if he grow up would like to be a doctor.In Chuka is the best place to live and a conducive business place. my hobby is reading bible and a I completed a diploma course of theology in 2017 and feel blessed seeing people happy.During my free time I usually assist street children exploit potential in them , with the Zidisha assistance I know I will make my Area a good place for my community, my future plan is to settle a children home for street and destitute children.

My Business

With the help of Zidisha I have managed to buy a parcel of land through the profit I have made since 2015 when i became a member,and 2016 I got the diploma certificate in theology,and last year I managed to raise my shop capacity as in the picture and for this year am planning to increase as now am planning to produce music
