About Me

my name is osure.i was mostly in nakuru for both primary and secondary schools.i had a nice life when was a kid and this has helped me so much in the way l deal with difficulties or harship in life. i started my business of entertainment through introduction by friends.i attached myself to a group of friends who provided entertaiment materials like speakers and tents to events.this is how i started my business.
i live where land issue is a serious issue.people like land ownership than any other thing and people are culturally inclined.and when my children grow up i will like them to serve in the army.this will benefit the country. in my free time i am able to swim and do yoga.

My Business

i am in the entertainment industry.i provide events organizers with public address systems and also the tents that are used in the weddings and different events that require those materials to be supplied.every weekend there is an event so the demand for public address and the tents are high.
i chose this kind of business because l was introduced by friends and also i found it profits range from $120 to $180 and this is what i use to pay my bills and take my kids to school.the rest i plough back into the business buying more of the equipments that i use

    Borrower abandoned his loan after making one repayment. He was extremely active on Zidisha while his loan was fundraising, pleading with lenders to give him money. However, he disappeared once he received his loan. I received no contact from his Volunteer Mentor and the person who Invited him to Zidisha after repeated attempts to reach out to them. I do not recommend lending to this borrower in the future.
