About Me

I am a hardworking lady who loves her family and loves doing business. I believe that business is very important in the growth of every country. Additionally the more people are in business, the lower the unemployment rate becomes. I thank God for Zidisha which is a great platform for budding business people.

My Business

I started my business about three years ago with an initial capital of Ksh150,000 ($1726) it entails reselling of both men‘s underwear and socks as well as women‘s underwear .The business accrues a monthly income of Ksh25,000 ($288) in sales and a net profit of about Ksh9,000 ($104).My monthly expenses include rent for the business premises and salary for my one employee all totaling to Ksh15,000 ($173) .My business projections for the coming years is to expand it to a larger one with huge variants of products to counter the costs I encounter. I want to also want to create more jobs to the community around by employing a few more personnel.

Loan Proposal
