About Me

I am Emmanuel Kibor 26 years old born and raised in a village called kamosong in chepkorio sub-county by a single mother i have one sibling ,i attended kamosong primary school and later joined bishop delany secondary school in eldoret town in 2005. after high school i joined alphax college and graduated with a diploma in information communication technology in 2013.raising both my secondary school and college fees was so hard for my mum. one year later after finishing college i was not able to secure employment so i worked as a freelance computer technician and web developer and raised a little capital to start my own shop for computer repair and maintenance.
I come from the highlands of elgeyo marakwet county and our community does believe so much about self employment so getting financial support to start a business is a bit hard currently am working hard to change that
Currently am no yet married bt hoping in a year or two I will get married.
My hobbies include networking, watching and playing football, basketball and love reading articles both in magazines and online
