About Me

My name is Miriam Kasiva ,am a mother of two sons,i live in Nairobi Kenya Komarock Estate Mkanju Court House no 11.I went to School in the rural home at school called Mukaa Secondary School in 1970 and went up to the 4th form.I then went to Nairobi to join Insurance college of East Africa and got a certificate in Marketing I worked for insurance company since 1995 -2004 after which i joined Network marketing.

My Business

My business is Organo gold.I am in coffee business,Coffee is the second sold commodity after oil in the world.Everyone takes coffee or tea for break fast.I intend to enlarge my business All over East Africa,and since the company has not get opened its doors in most of the Africa Countries i will use the money to sent the coffee to them as samples.Also i would like to help other people who can not afford to join the business to do so,because the joining fee is close to 22,000 kenya shillings.The profit magine is good,Wholesale per box of coffee is 1500 kenya shillings while retail goes sales for 3000 kenya shillings.

I have since expanded my business thanks to my lenders in zindisha,I have invested in chicken farming and i am seing great results.i started with only few chicks and now i have over 300 chicks.my dream with this new business is to became a supplier in most of the hotels around.I would request my renders and zindisha to kindly consider giving me a second loan so as to achieve my goal of 1000 chicks by september.

Loan Proposal

I still what to increase my stock of chicks,this time round i want to import the kuroiler chicks from my neighbouring country Uganda.i would love to try them because they grow very fast and big too.I intend to use at least 100 dollars for my transport to Uganda almost 240 dollars to purchase the chicks.I would like to request my lenders to kindly support me again.

    Mmm!! Am so happy have finished paying my loan.however the last payment I did a mistake and plaid less 100/- which I paid after i realized the mistake.am not sure whether that is what reduced my on time payment.However am indeed greatful to zidisha team and my lenders.you are really doing a great job by helping us grow business.I think if I had known you early I would by now be a millionaire because what I lacked was capital. Now am just waiting to see the first egg because am told my chicks should start laying on the 5th month and I can't wait to see the first egg.I am told that I should start them on layers feed so that they can fasten the laying processes. I have also started feeding them on sukuma wiki greens so that they can be more healther. I have started a kitchen garden which will save both Purposes,my kitchen and my chicken due to space some of the sukuma wiki have done them on sucks and I water them every day.I have also started selling most of the cocks since I don't need most of them,I just need like two cocks to service the entire population of the she chicks.,coz I need fertilized eggs.Have downloaded some of the chicks reaching out for hanged greens.and part of my kitchen garden thanx to my lenders.Long live all the lenders may God increase you in all ways.
