About Me

I started my education in early 90s and in 2005 i finished my primary level and latter joined my seceondary from 2006 to 2009.From there i was employed as a turnboy in a transport company and i worked there for two years.That is where my interest in starting a small bussiness started.I started selling plastic bags where i stayed for one year in the bussiness.Latter on a friend of mine introduced me to clothes selling and thats when i joined the bussiness.I have been trying all i can to be where i dream to be and it hasn't be easy.I am looking forward to be a great bussiness man in the future to enable me to fulfill my goals and that of society at large.At the same time i want to be a source of blessing/income to the needy as i do pity those who are under go difficulties in life may it be getting food for them to eat and clothes to wear.Therefore if i get this loan i will increase my stock with new arrival clothes that will bring more customers in attention and this help them to buy more of them.Hence employing the less desparate ones in my bussiness for them to get an income and for there lives to shine too.

My Business

I used to sell Plastics bags before they were burned.Later i was introduced by my friend in the business of selling New clothes where i started with as little as ten thousand shillings. From there the compétition in business was high and i decided to shift to another business. Selling of Food (Cereal Shop).

Project Proposal

Am planning to use the amount given to buy mesh wire that I will use to fence my small dam for water harvesting and also some pieces of pipes that will help in irrigation.

    First of all,i would like to thank all my lenders for your assistance. The just completed loan that you gave me,i used it to buy a shop freezer and ever since i bought it.Through it am now able to sell things like cold drinks e.g sodas,mineral water,juices and fresh milk . This has really increased the number of customers in my shop from 30% to 35%. In this achievement i have now decided to rent a one acre of land for firming of passion fruits since they are doing well in market. I now look forward to use this new loan that I have applied to buy a dam liner to use it on the harvested rain water that will help me in my firming.

    Josephat has made some payments today. He says the delay is because he closed his business due to the Corona pandemic. We talked about him reducing his repayment amount so that he is comfortable in paying to keep his repayment to over 90%
