About Me

I was born in a family of three. Being the first, I have had to make sacrifices in order for my other siblings to have a chance to study, since my parents do casual job which are not so reliable.

After my O-levels, I worked in a clothing store, thereafter in a phone & accessories shop where I used to sell phones and operate m-pesa [mobile money transfer]. After there, I was employed as a cyber[cafe] attendant, where I gained passion for the cyber business.

Later I bought a desktop and a printer with which I started with my printing and type setting job, which I operate today.

My Business

My business involves printing, typesetting, writing people's projects and solving other business printing issues. I also help people in making online job applications and accessing various government services like applying for a KRA PIN or driving license. My typical costs are papers, offices space, electricity, and internet. I normally use my profits to support my family and siblings who are still in school.

Loan Proposal

I plan to utilize my first loan in buying a camera and for school fees clearance.

I have been having various customers who need me to take a photo of them for a passport, but I have not been able to deliver on this service due to lack of a camera. A camera costs 10,000 Kshs and the school fees balance is 15,000 Kshs, but I have some savings that will help me top up my budget.

By having a camera I will not only be able to fulfill my clients' need, but it will attract more customers since I will be able to take their passport photos. I need to clear school fees in order to urgently get my certificate so that I can be able to access other business opportunities and business training in the local authority. This will translate to more business for me.
