About Me

My name is Pamela Ochieng. I come from Kisumu county in Kenya. Iam the first born in a family of 7, all alive with our last born still attending school.I work on temporary contracts as a counselor and majorly run a handworks shop in Ahero 17 km from Kisumu. Am a single of mother of three who are all attending school, single by circumstance not choice. Am a born again Christian and I serve in church as a construction treasurer and service lead, besides I also serve in praise and worship team, doing what I love most, I.e singing, playing guitar and piano.

My Business

I make money out of handworks which involves but not limited to shaggy mats, soft carpets. duvets, pillows, beadworks and traditional baskets. I also offer consultancy as a counselor especially in HIV/AIDS and study coordination.

Project Proposal

In the last 2 months I have been trying to incorporate foodstuff to my carpet and house decor business, since it's a fast moving item. The result has been awesome and has given me a drive to continue with the cereals. Since I intend to supply schools with beans and maize , I need a dditional money to put into the same, and this is an opportunity for me to request for loan support in order to realise my goals in business
