About Me

I am Hellen Ngeiywo Chepkwemoi. I was born and brought up in western province, mt elgon district kaptalelio village. i was born in a family of three kids, one girl who is myself and two boys. I am a mother of one. I schooled in kaptalelio primary school and st columban's kitale which i was forced to drop out in form 2 due to lack of funds. i later managed to finish kcse as a private adult student. I started my business inorder to earn a living as well as bring up my baby.

My Business

Hallo my lenders, here i come again for my second loan. Am very grateful for every lender who made it possible for me to get my first loan which has really improved my sales and profit margins. i could not thank you enough but i am really thankful.through that loan i have been able to satisfy the demand that was there.

Loan Proposal

the demand for clothes is high because of the upcoming Eid celebrations. apart from what i sale most that is mostly food items i also try to go for what is currently in great demand. Therefore i will use $550 to buy the clothes and the rest to buy children's shoes. These purchases will enable me to make good profits hence enabling me to repay my loan on time like the first one hence changing my life. kindly my lenders i ask for your generous contribution to make my dreams come true.

    Due to unavoidable circumstances I would like to resedule my payment plan to enable me pay in bits and on time. This has been due to a financial crisis that I have been facing lately but I thank God because the high Season is here already and I can now guarantee repaying my loan in time and with much ease. Thanks for bearing with me.

    Dear zidisha family, I am very sorry for my late repayment. I live with my five siblings and one of them just joined high school. This has really put me down financially since our dad died when I was only five years old. The business has not been working out well too. I am currently trying to engage in maasai sandles, vikois, lessos and baskets which are more profitable and soon am hoping to clear my balance. Thnx for understanding.

    Hallo my lenders, It is with deep regret that i wish to apologise for my late payment in the past two installments. I was not feeling well during the period and i couldnt go to open my business. That made my ontime paument rate to drop but to make sure i keep my promise i cleared the past due balance yesterday and it is yet to reflect. Therefore i humbly ask for your understanding. Thanks in advance.
