About Me

I am a businessman and a farmer from Keringet, Kuresoi constituency in Nakuru County. My business is in Information Technology sector; I own a cyber cafe and a computer services shop in Molo. My business in situated in Tuulek House, Olenguruone centre, Kuresoi South Sub-county.
I offer computer services: cyber, typesetting, designing various items, printing, photo-printing, photocopy, scanning, lamination e.t.c).
In farming, I grow potatoes, peas and rear sheep.

My Business

I started the business in October 2012 with a computer which my friend assisted me with. I had to lend a printer from a friend at a monthly fee. The little amount of money I had was used to pay for office rent and license fees.
The business has been successful; currently I have acquired my own machines worth over (USD 1,948) and own other assets (bought directly from business income) worth over (USD 8,534).
I am also currently investing in a sheep farm.
The only hindering factor is raising enough capital in a short span of time; but I believe ZIDISHA is going to assist me solve this problem.

Loan Proposal

First is to thank the organization and lenders for considering me in the past by awarding me loans. Am very much grateful.
For now am involved in sheep rearing and the IT business. I have 20 ewes and a ram but I am planning to add more ewes to the flock. I want to rear a total of 50 ewes. If you will consider me, I will buy more of the ewes in order to achieve my investment target.
I look forward to your favourable consideration.
Thank you.

    I bought a ram with the loan I had applied and repaid. I currently want to buy one more ewe.

    I am a sheep farmer. The problem is that I don't own a ram which has lead to delay in breeding of my ewes. This amount will enable me to buy good breed of a young ram. Improved breeds of my sheep will mean a good income from my farm.

    I want to take this opportunity to thank all the members who funded my project. I can now buy the ram.

    I have bought two lamb ewes from the loan. The total cost of the two sheep was KES 10,000. I used KES 2,000 to do the fencing of sheep enclosure; KES 970 was used in purchasing deworming medicine, mineral salt and molasses.
    I thank you lenders for your continued support.

    I wish to thank my previous and current lenders for their support. I am very much grateful. God bless you all. I was able to purchase two more ewes with the loan you gave me last time.
    This week only, 5 of my ewes gave birth – one sired twins – but one of the six lambs died. I am expecting three more lambs by the end of this week.
