About Me

My name is Geoffrey Kwenda and 25 years of age. I went to Mufulira Secondary School were I completed my high school.

After I completed my high school I was unfortunate my Uncle was sponsoring and paying for my school bills was retrenched as a foreman while working for the Mines.

Due to financial challenges to enrol into Collage I ended up becoming an entrepreneur.
Hence I have a small Shoe and Clothing Sales business.

My Business

Am involved in selling shoes and clothing sales for men. I own a small shop in the central business of town were I conduct my business.

The demand is good and I sale ZMW 500.00 to 700 ZMW per day. I choose this type of business because of the interest I have in fashion and designing of clothing. Hence I sale them very fast and I make very good profits which sustains my me and my family.

Therefore the profits I earn I reinvest, save some for the advancement of my education and improve the living standard of my family.

Project Proposal

With this loan am requesting to buy one bale of shoes and a bale of clothing sales to stock up at the shop.

I have demand of casual fashion wear of shoes and clothing. This is a good opportunity of making more profits and maximize on profits.

Thank you Zidisha staff for this opportunity and the lenders will be able to support on this loan.
Thank you in advance.
