About Me

My name is Joyce Wamucii born and bred in Central part of Kenya. I come from a family of three and my parents are small scale farmers. I attended primary and secondary school and later joined a college where I did a course in Food and Beverage. I later did a computer course before relocating to Mombasa where I got a job as food manager.

I am married and my husband is a businessman in the same town.
I currently work in Mombasa in a fast food joint and run a side business at the same time. I am a hard working person who is always looking for opportunities to grow.

My Business

Apart from my salaried job, I run a side business where I do bureau services such as photocopying documents, lamination and binding works. My main clients are college students who bring their materials to be photocopied, bound and related services. I also get a fair share of business from the surrounding population.

My business would be more productive if I offer more services like typing. For me to this, I need a computer and printer and my savings cannot allow me to do it for now. I therefore need this push in form of Zidisha loan to enable me achieve this goal.

I get a modest net income of about $200 per month but I am hoping that this will go up as the business grows.

Loan Proposal

If loaned, I will use this money to buy a second hand computer to complement the one I am using at the moment. Lack of adequate hardware is slowing me down since I have to queue the jobs that are brought to us. With an extra machine, I will be able to to many tasks simultaneously hence increase my efficiency.

I am lucky I have a friend who is winding up his business and he has agreed to sell his fairly good computer set at a discounted price of $200. With this loan and a little bit from my husband, I will be able to make the purchase.
