About Me

I am lilian akinyi ,I went to st Georges primary school and St Georges secondary school.I then joined Kenya medical training institute for a diploma in clinical medicine. I got a job with an NGO it was only a years contract and we were working with poor communities to provide cheap health care , I was very happy to help these communities in remote areas.when my I lost my job I decided to open up a clinic in the remote area to help them.The clinic is based in very remote area with poor roads accessibility and with very high ,malaria prevalence due to proximity to lake.
I have one child whom I got as a result of rape, I am not always ashamed to say about it ,despite all these I love my child who will be turning three, I am currently engaged and looking forward to start a have a grate family.
I am always humble and saved ,I always feel obligated to help whenever I can, I always feel all children must be given a chance to live .

My Business

I provide medical services in my clinic and I always diagnose and treat minor diseases,since my business has just started I do not have enough equipment and I would always give fast aid and refer serious cases.
The demand for the services is high due to long distances to public hospitals and my fair prices .
my monthly typical costs are $200 per month for running the clinic and my monthly revenues are $450 per month.
I use the profits 50% to invest back to the business and the rest to pay fees for my child and one adopted child I live with and also support my family and siblings.
