About Me

My name is Agupugo Augustinemary Chukwumaobi. I am a true son of the soil from Nneogidi Village, Agulu town in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State but currently reside in Umuoma-Uli at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Uli Campus.
I am a graduate of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering (Second Class Lower).
I grew up in three different coordinates such as South-West (Benin City) North (Niger State) and South-South (Anambra State).
I started my life as a hustler in the year 2010 as an undergraduate, working (Computer Operator) while going to school but on a very miniature payment of 2,000 by month.
I have worked with my computer owners even the ones that used me to fulfill their dreams at the detriment of very poor payment and i have been in this field from 2010 to date and today i am the CEO of my own Computer Business Called "Austinmary Computer Institute.
Although not registered but hope to register it some day once i have actualize the necessary equipment and linked my business to more reliable sources.
I started my business in the month of September 2019 and since then i have being making little income that could pay my house rent, feed me, send money to my parents to manage and my siblings who are in school to manage too hoping that when i get more much money, i could buy equipment like high grade color digital printers, photocopy machine, high grade printing machine to enhance and improve the income every month.
Apart from being a computer operator, i am also a researcher, i research students project, seminar, assignment and other internet registrations for students, NYSC and others. My major customers are students of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University.

My Business

The name of my Business is "Austinmary Computer Institute, started in the month of September, 2019.
The following services are what we render; Typing and printing, Scanning, Photocopy, Lamination, Project, seminar, assignment research for undergraduate students, registration of POSTUTME, Internet services and others.
I choose this kind of business because it is a business that puts at least when there is no work N5,000 daily and N10,000 to N15,000 when there is work daily.
At the end of the month, one can be having about N80,000, N100,000 after expenses.
This profits are divided into 3 segment. First, for feeding and saving for my house rent, parents and siblings. Secondly, for impromptu activities or damage that might arise within the shop equipment.

Loan Proposal

The loan will be used to purchase a digital color printer machine for A3 and A4.
This will benefit me in a very high way because in the area of business where i am, no business premises has it and many people needs it for the printing and its cost is high enough to make me more income in the establishment.
This equipment will increase the business profit by 20% extra.

    The previous loan was used to buy stationaries like A4 paper, Photocopy toner... The money generated from its usage was used to repair spoiled systems and pay some bills like phcn and shop permit bills etc. I wish that my loan maybe increased to enable me buy a new printer.

    I want to use this opportunity to thank Zidisha Lenders. When I took my first loan, I was using it to buy accessories but then CoVid 19 came up and I lost customers which lead me to come back to my home town. Finally, early this August, I got a shop and started same business. I hope to use this particular money to engage or buy necessary accessories needed to make my business successful. Thank you for bearing with me.
