My names are John Bagare Odindo, I am a male Kenyan citizen by birth of sound mind from Western Province, Vihiga County part of Western province I am the first born in a family of 4 three brothers and 1 sister.
My geographical ancestral home is located one kilometre from Luanda town from where i operate a small sole proprietor enterpreneural business, which i started immediately 2 years after i finished my O-level education. Venturing in this type of business was so challenging especially in facilitating for funds to kick-start it. Through help of my friends and my childhood savings God favoured me and i managed to start it.
During my free time I like am reading magazines, newspapers, watching entertaining and educating movies, making new friends and I also love browsing through the Internet.
Since i finished my o-level education, i have dedicated most my time to computers, partially I also offer phone repairing and phone flushing services.
With the small profits I get from my business, I have been able to secure three second hand desktop personal computers worthy Kshs. 36,000/= (USD 450) and three second hand Notebook Pcs for Kshs. 40,000/=) (USD 500) which i have in my business, I have two workers of whom i pay them on daily basis Kshs. 320/= (USD 4) each, I do pay house rent Kshs. 3,500/=) monthly, also i do pay electricity bill Kshs. 1,900/= monthly. I use the profits from my business to cater for my basic needs and family needs . I also use some of the profits to add to my stock by buying new accessories.
The source of income that will be used to re-pay the loan will come from my business which offers computer services like typesetting, printing, scanning, computer repair, photograph taking and printing, computer software installation services, sales from computer accessories like; mouse, power cables, keyboards, sales from stationeries like; envelopes, photo papers, photocopying papers, printer repair services, sales from optical disks, I will also use money from phone repairs and flushing. I prefer this kind of business because it is much profitable, enjoyable to run and easy to manage.
On daily basis am able to save Kshs. 2,080/= (USD 24) from my business after I have deducted all expenditures of the day hence I only have few items with me. The major problem my business has is power blackout which takes more time to be repaid.
The reasons that I want to use the loan funds is to expand my business itself by having more stock by buying new products because they are highly in demand in Luanda town. This will have an impact on my lifestyle because when I get more income I will also have enough money that I will be saving. In future I intend to be a computer teacher.
The loan will be repaid from cash accumulated from phone repair, phone flushing and general computer services.
Thanks guys for the help you accorded me, and am also praying to be granted another loan for the same purposes of expanding my business, with these cash i intend to buy mobile phone accessories i.e. phone batteries, zippers, chargers, housings which costs approximately $ 54 and also buy general computer accessories such as 3 web camera @ $ 82, ups machines , and 40 reams of photocopying papers @ $ 143, 10 laptop adapters @ $ 108. The costs of the above items totals to approximately kshs., 35,000/= ($ 380) the profit which i'll get from the sale of the above items will be used to repay back the loan and also for the upkeep of the welfare of my business, family, workers and friend's; and also for the benefit of those around me. I pray and promise that God willing; if granted the Loan will work hard to repay the loan in due time. Thanks and God bless Zidisha.
