About Me

My name is Mercy Zoe Wanjiru, I'm a Kenyan businesswoman. I run a company called Bush and events Africa. We organize safaris and adventure travel within Kenya and Tanzania. I started my business 5 years ago. I love my business because it's passion driven and i enjoy my work very much. I started my business from my little savings after working in another tour company for 3yrs and I always knew that someday I'll own my own business. To me it's a dream come true although I'm now seeking funds to expand my business. I plan to get a loan and buy camping gear and other outdoor essential like sleeping bags,camping seats,gazebo etc. I use the profits from my business go towards expanding my business further as i grow it step by step with the little i make over time

My Business

I have used my previous loan from Zidisha to buy camping tents,mattresses, solar lamps,camping seats etc and this has really helped my business to grow. I'm very grateful to Zidisha lenders! I use the items i bought to run my trips hence i save on hiring from other sources like i used to, and sometimes when I'm not using the gear, i hire them out as well. The vehicle is being used to transport my camping equipment which i used to transport in a hired vehicle so now I'll be cutting the hiring costs. The vehicle can also be used to transport people which is a plus in my line of business.

Loan Proposal

I'm very grateful for the last loan i got through zidisha, because i got to buy more camping equipment which i've been hiring out and making good returns which i re-Invest in my business. Thank you zidisha lenders! I would now like to borrow more, to purchase a desktop computer and some furniture as i plan to take in 1 more staff member in Jan 2016 as we're now quite busy with safari inquiries meaning we're growing and this is good for business. The USD 560 loan will help me buy the computer, desk and chair

    Hello funders,

    Thank you for the last loan i took, it really helped me do a side business using the vehicle i renovated during the Covid period and that kept me going despite the tough time.

    Thank you very much. I truly appreciate the support

    Hello Mercy,
    nice to read that your work is your passion - not many can claim that. Your profile picture has lake in background. Reminded me of a fantastic National Geographic film that I had seen about "flamingos on lake Nakuru". Maybe, some day I will have fortune of seeing that spectacle in person and maybe I might take a tour with your company :-)

    Wish you all the best in your business plans. Post a photo of your vehicle once you have finished up all the work!

      Hello Joshi,
      Thank you for the kind words. Yes, I passionately love what I do :)

      The Lake in my photo is called 'Lake Elementaita'. It is a few kilometers to Lake Nakuru. These lakes form part of the various lakes on the floor of the Rift valley. They are very beautiful, I hope someday you will get to see this for yourself. Lake Nakuru nowadays has very few flamingos because the water levels rose and the flamingos left, but Lake Elementaita and two other Rift valley lakes still have flamingos. It is such a beautiful sight of the pink flamingos covering the lakes. I cannot even perfectly describe how lovely it looks. It is a phenomenal spectacle. The pink birds are in thousands.

      I will sure post a photo of the vehicle once done with the work. Thank you so much for your support!

      And I do hope someday you will get to visit Kenya. I'll be happy to take you around. Thanks :)

        Oh wow - what are the chances that I come to know someone who is so close to Lake Nakuru! Sad to hear that the flamingos have left. At least you can still find them in Lake Elementaita.

        I know. Some things are not to be described or captured in camera - you just have to see it in person. Enjoy the sight. But yes, a few photos will give us at least a glimpse of the grand view you have!

        I hope too :-)
