About Me

Am a single mum of a 13 year old boy in class 8 and due to sit for the National Exam in November and proceed to high school God willing come next year . Am currently living in Section 58 with my mum after my dad passed on in 2002, where I also do my business. I went to Christ The King High school and later to Mohanlal Sukhadia University.I ventured into business out of passion to empower the youth. Am hoping that with Zidisha support am able to upgrade my computers to TFTs since I have the old models, to own a scanner, bidding machine, a photocopy machine and also grow and own my shop to be a bookshop too someday.

My Business

I started my cyber cafe business in 2007 at section 58 after i had searched for a job for a long time with no success.My main aim was to help youthful job seekers prepare for job interviews by helping them write their CVs,resume,job application letters,research work,thesis and article writing among others.I have 5 desk top computers and one employee who helps me out.On a good day I make up to Kshs. 3000 after deducting overheads,utilities and internet.The reason I joined Zidisha is because of the need to see my business grow to another level where I can buy more computers and get a bigger space for my business

Loan Proposal

My government has since opened a website which is now a gateway to all government offices where one can apply or renewal a driving licence, a PSV, an Identity Card, application and renewal of passport is now online and one need to apply after opening an account at the government page, to do all this one needs to take a photo hence alot of request from clients since these are daily requirements. I want to be able to take the pictures and post on my clients government page and be a one stop shop where I get to do everything on my own and no need to call a photographer all the way from town. I need to buy a good camera Kshs. 40,000 to be able to do this. I also want to have a new face in my cyber cafe by repainting and spend Ksh. 10,000 at it and giving it a fresh look so attract my customers to come in and get their services done. Thank you and looking forward for your continued support. God bless.
