About Me

My Name is Frederick NDEGE, a young Kenyan entrepreneur. I am 26 year of age.
Having gone through alot of hardships during my young age, my hope has been to succeed and emerge the winner in everything I do.
During my early schooling age, poverty could not make me a happy child. I could not enjoy all days present in school. The school uniforms and other scholastic materials was only a dream. But this never stopped me from achieving my dream of getting education. I knew education was my only key to success. Despite all the challenges, I made it through the primary school and joined secondary school from where I performed tremendously well towards achieving my government sponsorship to taking a course in Technology from one of the kenyan university (maseno)
I always thought of becoming an employer more than becoming an employee. This is because of the level of unemployment in the country and many other countries in Africa.
I therefore thought of coming up with the projects that can help me grow economically, grow my family and my friends through providing platform of work towards solving issues in return claim awards for their own efforts.
With that reasons in mind, I came up with a mini audio-visual firm that worked so well. This firm has already completed one project. Within the audio visual firm, being the technology person, I have led to development of the school management software that has already won two tenders worthy USD 3000.
In Swahili we say Twaweza, meaning "yes we can". Through hard work, focus and objectives, I have led the team through good progress and only the sky is our limit. Failure has never been our fear but success has always been the order of the day. Thanks to our perfect planning and thanks to ZIDISHA INC. Our best financial partner.

My Business

My business. I head a team of young software developers and our work is divided Into two(2).

(a) Development of school management software and other middle leveled softwares.
We have successfully developed an intelligent integrated school management software (SMS) that has won us two clients who have signed a form of acceptance and five more who are being taken through simulation and basic information on how the software automates the school activities.
My team and I also provide the school Local area network (LAN) that distributively makes available the software to all school's departments to post data to single database. This makes the administration easy to generate reports on daily activities.
Our LAN includes the supply of Computers which supports the minimum requirements of our software, The router and modem to connect the software to the Internet for staff to update database from outside the outside the LAN platform, The Network Switch, Thin Clients for Desktop virtualization to reduce power consumption, increase workspace and reduce the cost of purchase of many cpu's. Many thanks to ncomputing technology and zidisha inc. Funding.
(b) we also apply for audio visual supply and installation of music and video equipments.

Loan Proposal

I won a new tender in one of the best telecommunication service provider in the country to provide the video screen. I will therefore use the money plus some of savings to buy 8x8 abtus HDMI matrix , 4 49" television screens and other materials.

    The already pain loan helped me supply the the Abtus 4X4 HDMI matrix , The loan was a subsidy on the cash i had already saved from my other project. Many thanks to my lenders for the mechanisms you have put in place o help me grow economically. And to help many other young minds to grow and become the future enonomic giants. in swahili we say TWAWEZA. Meaning "yes we can"

    In my next project, with the help of the funds i have applied for, i will be able to supply the school management software to two of my client schools and pay back the loan within the required and set timeline.

    Sharing: Mr. Jack mah a few months ago visited one of the best academic school here in Nairobi Kenya. It was a meeting ,rather a conference about entrepreneur. There is one thing i picked amongst many from his organised speech. I quote, " if you want to be succesful in business, embloy the best."
    Therefore i am happy to challenge the platform members to put the mechanism in place.
    As an example this week i am counting sucess and i am employing three new software developers to help in development as we look forward to attaining multiple success.

    I also would like to inspire young entrepreneurs. Dont see it as if its too big to start it. JUST DO IT. You have chosen the best financial lender platform. I call it best because its interest rate is almost null, payment process is based on your flexibility and you get new admirable bonuses as you maintain the good payment record.
    Finally i just want thank the lenders group as you are dedicated to reduce the gap between the poor and the rich. One day i shall stand at international platform and proudly say "i am who i am because of the zidisha lenders team", and/or if i wont make it internationaly, i will proudly tell my son or daughter that,"your dad was never born rich, he is what he is because of zidisha lenders*.

    My request: I would request the team to design and open up a mechanism of eradicating the digital devide. This vice is so much affecting many people in Africa,Kenya ,Nairobi and my home town kisii.
    The digital divide has led to many people lacking information. And lack of information leads to lack of accessing business knowledge and opportunities. But once one gets the information then the rest shall move on smoothly.

    Because of that reason i am requesting , as you think over the same issue, to design a mechanism of loaning out digital gadgets with already installed information like the zidisha app and other business information to the youth. That shall increase the personal dependability.

    Thanks from Freddie
    Best regards
