About Me

I am Emmanuel Jua aged 29years. I grew up in Embu which is on the slopes of mt kenya. I schooled in the neighbouring county in high school and managed to get a grade to take me to tertiary education. enrolled in chuka university for a degree in commerce. having an entrepreneur mindset and from the push of need I took a loan with zidisha in 2015 and a few borrowing from friends and was able to start a cyber while in my 2nd year of study. since then I've regularly borrowed from zidisha with a good repayment schedule and credit score and was able to grow the cyber. it assisted me alot to earn day to day living in the university. I was able to graduate in 2017 and from then I was able to employ some two other people. I'm grateful to zidisha this far and I look forward to a more mutual beneficial business relationships.

My Business

I run a cyber cafe located within the university whereby I have two printers. a kyocera taskalfa and an Epson coloured printer. I have two desktops and now wish to expand by adding five more desktops to broaden my customer base. this will see me grow the day to day profit and this will be a plus to me and also to the community since I will have brought services closer to them

Loan Proposal

when I get the loan I will use it to purchase 5 new computer desktops for use in the cyber cafe. this will see the business increase daily sales and reciprocate to increase in profit. I target to atleast have an extra 1000Ksh profit at the end of the week. I will be grateful for the loan.

    Thank you my lenders and team zidisha at large. You are of great impact to my personal and business life playing a great role. I look forward to a greater business relationship and even a day I will also be a lender and help transform a life.
    This facility as indicated I will use it to purchase a color printer to be able to tap on to the market which is not saturated thus I look forward to an increment to my day income and a larger profit margin after expenses deductions. This at-large transforming to a better livelihood standard. Thank you again.

    With the last facility I was able to purchase a copier machine which has increased my day income. It's more fast than the initial 10copies per minute since its 18copies per minute. (Kyocera Taskalfa 181)This machine has enabled me to broaden my customers capacity thus increasing my income before the university breaks for holidays. Attached is a picture of the two machines.

    I wish to place my review for a decreament of my installment amount.I am unable to keep up with the initial installlment owed to the difficulty in the banana business I invested in.lately there has been a shortage of rains and thus the product has not had a good yield leading to its shortage.On my other printing business the students have gone for their long holidays thus this leaves me with delayed payments. I do not want to affect my on time repayments there I kindly request for a review.
    In case the business picks up I will place increased instalments to be able to repay the loan on time.

    Its near festive season n its rainy.But the rains can't hinder the green banana business which is quite attractive as per now. Banana have gone commercial in sense that they are even being used to manufacture flour!!!
