About Me

I grew up in Munyali village,and attended Siritanyi primary school where i did my O level exams.My parents were farmers and could hardly afford to feed seven of us, four girls and 3 boys. We sold maize from the farm for a living while my mother tilled peoples farms in order to earn an income to be able to clothe us.
Through this hardship we managed to study and i passed my primary school education and went to Chesamisi high school where i struggled to pay my own fees by selling groundnuts to other students. The management was kind enough to understand and would allow me to work in return for some deductions to my schoolfees.
I managed to graduate and still by selling groundnuts i raised enough money to gain entry into college through friends and bursaries contributions.I attended Nairobi university and attained a Diploma in Human Resource management.

My Business

I am a practicing farmer and keep poultry. For 14 years i have bought chicks at 1$ per chick and sold each at 4$ depending on seasons and market prices.I also buy maize,bean and cabbage seedlings which i transplant into my one acre farm and after harvest i sell close to 6 bags of maize and 4 bags of beans each at about 12$.
I use these proceeds to pay fees for my two childrens primary education and my wifes college fees.I also help my parents to educate my younger siblings some of whom are still in high school.

Loan Proposal

Given the loan with zidisha team, I will buy two more computers for my customers to browse because the ones that I am having are few and I have more clients and also for typesetting, so it keeps customers waiting. Since I have a enough room to fix them it will give me humble time in serving my customers effectively. I believe for the period I have been with zidisha I have maintained on time repayment. I trust that this business, the profit will go high thus making my family to learn effectively without being send home for fee balance. Thanks team for your support.
