About Me

I am 37 year old,Kenyan citizen. I was born in Muranga county as a last born in a family of seven children.
I am a trained software developer, having done a diploma in Software Engineering.
However, due to limited opportunities for diploma holders, i didn't land a job in my chosen profession. I am currently working in a company as a imports assistant.

I would like to enroll for a course in clearing and forwarding, to better my chances of a career in this field

My Business

I am currently working in a company as a imports assistant,
My monthly salary is USD 280.
I also engage in part time farming in my rural home in Muranga, on an inherited piece of land.
I mostly produce maize, (Corn), beans, and vegetables on a small scale, with an aim of going commercial in future.

Loan Proposal

With this loan, i will buy farm inputs. I will buy maize planting seeds worth Ksh 4,000 and the rest will buy fertilizer, top dress and organic manure
Repayments will be from my salary.

Income Source

I am an employee of a manufacturing company. i will repay from my salary. I earn USD 300, which will be sufficient to repay this loan

    My last loan was to buy a fridge, as i had a baby on the way, and i wanted to refrigerate his milk, when i go back to work from maternity leave, to ensure 6 months exclusive breastfeeding. This was a success and baby is now 11 months old
    Thanks to you
