About Me

My childhood was good, i was born in Nakuru county , i joined Belbur primary in my village Belbur and sat for Kcpe, I later joined Rongai secondary and sat for my Kenya certificate of secondary education, I managed to score a B- and joined Nairobi university where i pursued a degree in social sciences, After campus i did not secure a job so i had to find something to keep busy.
My friend whom owns a hotel offered me a job where i could wash utensils serve customers as i learned how to cook,.
Unfortunately my friend passed on in the year 2019, and me and her mother had to make sure the business is running, I learnt a lot in cooking later on i chose to take a short course in catering.
I later started a outside catering business which is doing well.

My Business

My business is outside catering, i operate a hotel business in my village, I started the business after working in a friends hotel for two years where i learnt a lot from the hotel and got passion in hotel business.
I realized that if i can do outside catering services to weddings and events my hotel will make more profit thus be in a better position to expand the hotel.
I hereby seek for source of money to boost my savings so to buy more cooking utensils and hot pots to help with the business.

Project Proposal

I plan to invest the loan in my outside catering business, money from my other mpesa business goes to family upkeep.
