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, Keringet 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.
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.
I want to take this opportunity once again to thank all the lenders who funded my previous loans. I really appreciate you people for your kind hearts and generosity. May God bless you as you extend you kind hands to others.
Secondly, let me put my request again to be considered for more funds to buy more sheep. This will allow me get nearer to my target of 50 sheep. Sheep currently is in high demand, but not like the month of September to December where there are many festive activities here in Kenya. By September, my lambs will have grown enough to fetch alot of profits. I will use the income to pay for my siblings school fees and buy another printer for my computers services business.
The loan I will receive will help me to;-
1. Buy two ewes for US$ 118
2. Do some fence repairs at US$ 21.
Your consideration will highly be appreciated.
I will repay the loan comfortably from my business income.
