My Business

I STARTED MY BUSINESS IN THE YEAR 2010 AT GITHONGO MARKET IN MERU CENTRAL. I DO DRESS MAKING AND OTHER CLOTHING DESIGNS.I AM HAPPY WITH MY BUSINESS.
I CHOSE THIS BUSINESS BECAUSE MY AUNT DID THE SAME BUSINESS AND USED TO TEACH ME HOW TO DO IT.I WAS VERY INTERESTED AND I JUST DECIDED TO DO THE SAME.
BASICALLY I USE MY PROFITS TO PAY SCHOOL FEES FOR MY CHILD AND ALSO REINVEST IN THE BUSINESS.

Loan Proposal

Hallo Zidisha, i am happy to have been registered as a member.
My first loan will be used to buy an extra sewing machine which will cost approximately 36 usd just to add one more.
This will not only benefit me alone but will also create a job vacancy for another
person.
I expect to increase my income by at least 50%
