About Me

I was born on 22nd May, 1989 and named Muganda Nyongesa Edward. I am the first born and hence much is expected from me as the role model to my two brothers and one sister. I attended Maseno Mixed Primary School, Emusire High School and Ebusakami High School respectively. Currently I am pursuing an undergraduate Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with Information Technology (Human Resource option) at Maseno University on a parallel basis. I am engaged to Caroline Alimu and blessed with one son Teddy Ryan Muganda now two years old.
I am an innovative, assiduous, industrious Kenyan, well organized and highly motivated towards achieving my goals. My hobbies include learning and sharing new ideas, constructive debating, reading business journals and watching soccer.
I currently reside at Ebusakami Junction, along Kisumu Busia highway road and a junction to Kakamega town.
Being a student had to find a way to sustain my financial needs and since I couldn’t find a job the only way out was to find an appropriate business to venture into. I started out by selling second hand clothes (mtumba) on a mobile basis. This was funded by some little earnings got from working on a casual basis at International Centre for Research and Agroforestry during my long holidays. I would buy the clothes from Luanda market and later on sale them to my fellow comrades students at Maseno University. From this was able cover up my bills such as house rent, electricity bill, food and assist my parents in funding for my school fees.

My Business

BUSINESS ENTITY
BUSINESS NAME: BRIDGE ICT
LOCATION: Ebusakami Junction to Kakamega, along Kisumu Busia highway road and about ½ km from Luanda Town.
The business has been operational since late 2011 up to now. The customer environment comprises of Schools, Churches, college students, surrounding community and individual using the Kisumu – Busia Highway.
The business offers variety of services ranging from sale of stationeries and computer accessories, m-pesa services, sale of sodas and computer services i.e. typesetting, printing, scanning, internet services and photocopy. Business earnings is used on stock update, repairs and replacement of any faulty machine parts and venturing into new business opportunities i.e. m-pesa agent services and soda sale.
BRIDGE ICT SWOT ANALYSIS
Strengths:
Monopoly market within the location i.e. only one offering Computer services.
Very strong devoted customer followers who will always come for my services and products from Bridge ICT.
Good customer care. This has created a strong following for the services offered hence not only recruiting new customers but retaining them.
Strong designs and quality i.e. card designing, document presentation.
Outsourcing out for job opportunities from fellow college students i.e. photocopy of handouts for classes and research project typing, and printing.
Weaknesses:
Lack of internet services (cyber café) for self-browsing hence making other customers opts to go to Luanda.
Speed of the photocopy machine is slow in producing many copies.
Lack/Minimum operating float in M-pesa services as compared to the customers demand.
Stock inadequacy to satisfy the market i.e. Stationeries and computer accessories.
Opportunities:
Reduce prices to increase market share on stationeries and computer accessories.
With strong customer base, Bridge ICT can easily venture into other avenues i.e. m-pesa agent and sale of sodas.
Technological development within the country hence the need to offer Computer packages training.
Offering new and enticing services i.e. Equity Bank Agent services.
Installation of a power back up.
Threats:
Many people now embracing personal computers i.e. phones, laptops, printers and copiers at household level.
Provision of laptops to schools by the government.
Frequent power blackouts.
Based on my SWOT analysis of Bridge ICT, I have been investing in the business based on the Strengths and opportunities aspects of the analysis. One of its major challenges is financial stability that seems to be a major threat in running of its day to day activities. As the owner of Bridge ICT I want steady and growing annual returns on the investments.

    Currently the mpesa business is stable with sufficient float as campared to the computer services business which suffered a great challenge due to recently concluded teachers strike nation wide within the country. Now that they are back its picking up slowly hence the need in reducing the instalment. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

    Hi, thanx for the dream validity enhanced by Zidisha orgainization. To the lenders you are actually God sent; believing in our ideas wiithout giving the miles we are away from you a chance to discourage you funding us. I received my second loan of kshs. 18,068 early February and used it to increase the amount of float in my M-pesa transaction business. Since then i realised an immediate effect on my commission which improved tremendously in the subsequent month. with your support morale has been restored upon me to conqour higher heights in bussinees world without limit. Cheers to zidisha Inc.
