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 love my business because it's passion driven and i enjoy my work very much. 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

Dear Lenders,
I plan to use this loan to renovate a vehicle(van) that i recently acquired. The vehicle needs to be repainted, the seats modified and it needs some basic mechanical repairs as well. I will be using this vehicle to transport my camping equipment that I bought from my previous zidisha loan and with the comfortable seats, it can also be used to transport my guests too in my safaris business. I have been hiring vehicles to transport my camping gear and guests but with my own vehicle, I will reduce this costs which is a plus to my business. Thank you in advance
