About Me

Am called Kellan Lukhafwa .I was born in the year 1978 in Kakamega County in Western province of the republic of Kenya East Africa .
I went to School between the year 1983 to the year 1990 in Kakamega primary School.
I went to Lugulu High School between the year 1991 to the year 1994.
I joined Iregi Teachers School between the year 1995 to the year 1997 as a p1 Teacher.
Am married to husband who is a Businessman in Eldoret town center.I have two children one girl and one boy and we are living together.
I started my own Business after I saved money that I was working for ,for four years as as a temporary employee.
My culture is that only boys are suppose to go School but girls ,Girls are are to be married immediately they grow up.
My Children want to become Doctors when they grow up.
My hobby is ridding the bicycle at my free time and sing with my children.

My Business

I provide Educational services at School.
This service is in great demand due to the fact there are many people around this place but very few School because it is a slum place of dwelling
I chose this kind of Business because it in line with my profession I took in School for two years and I like dealing with kids in my life and am also a social worker.

My typical cost and revenues is 15,000/KES
I use my profit I get from the Business as follows .
1.School fees for my kids =10,000/KES
2.reinvestment in the Business is=4,000/KES
3.Home improvement is =6,000/KES
4.Church activities is= 2,000/KES
5.My old mother in village =1,000/KES
And know that if i am given this fund by the end of this year my profit will increased and my expenditure will also increase by double .
I thank zidisha ;lenders for the good job they are doing worldwide for empowering the small entrepreneurs

Loan Proposal

When am given this loan amount then I will able to buy 19 desks for my class rooms and my School business at a cost of 190 US Dollars.
This will benefit the people around this place in that I will now be able to admit children form the neighborhood and they will not walk for distance looking for School and I will also benefit from them because the more they join the School the more I will get school fees from them and increasing my income.

If this plan is implemented then I expect this business to increase by 40% high and more in the near future.
I thank you in advance for considering to lend me again for the second time in life I believe in Zidisha and I now know that Zidisha is Real.
