About Me

My names are Japhet SIALYOBO Kasiya born in a polygamist marriage. My Father is married to five wives but they got divorced with my mother. We move to Mazabuka with my Mother from KALOMO town. My mom then got married again and in 1995 I started school and completed at a High school within the same town at At edmunds school. I went to Evelyn Home college under sponsorship because my step Father was a bricklayer and could not manage to sponsor me. Therefore I was lucky to be put under the bursary. After I completed school there was no employment and I just started working on other people laptops. I raised some money and started going to joberg South Africa but because of the cost of transport I stopped and concentrated on repairing, though now am just buying from the local suppliers. My dream is to setup a big computer shop so that people are well acquainted with ICT. Mazabuka is one of the fastest growing towns. People speak English with Tonga as the local language. Am happily married with one kid. Am a Seventh day Adventist so every Saturday i go to church with my wife and besides that, I also have started keeping chicken, guine fowl and turkeys on a small farm in the outskirts of town. I plan to expand this later.

My Business

Laptop Reseller and Repairer. I did computer systems engineering at Evelyn Home college diploma level. I opened a repairing shop and I also order laptops from Lusaka Zambia and resell here in Malaysia Zambia. The computer business is going on so well all what is needed is capital to boost the Business. The loan will also help me order computer spare parts such as batteries, power packs, Rams, webcames, hardrives etc.

Loan Proposal

I plan to buy Laptops from whosellers and resell them to various companies, individuals and institutions especially school. The schools will be supplied with desktop computers because the government introduced ICT courses in school and I would love to take advantage of the same. Individual clients will also be my target. But for now I will concentrate on buying one Laptop and spare parts and then resell them.
