About Me

I am a 29 yr old Kenyan, a Graduate, and an entrepreneur. My childhood desire has been to create employment (not to seek employment). Many youths in Kenya seek employment, which creates a large gap between employers and employees. I want to bridge this gap by creating jobs for everyone who seek it. However, I cannot do it alone; Zidisha can help me build businesses that not only sustain my family and me but also offer sources of income to other employees. I challenge everyone to help create employment for the youth to uplift our society.

My Business

My current business deals with computer services. At the moment, my business offers PC games and repairs/maintenance. However, I need to upgrade it to offer other services such as photocopying, printing, design, and computer school. This is a gradual process, but I hope it shall come to pass as well as induce the youth to venture into businesses as well as create employment for them.

Loan Proposal

My next project in this business as mentioned earlier is to connect the village to the world. In the process, I want to train the youth and even the old to use computers. i have made everything ready in terms of materials, all i need in this respect is more computers since I have just three. However, then next loan can enable me to add another 2 at a cost of $500 and enable connection to the internet $200 as well as furnishing of the business $30. This will enable me to offer internet services as well as train our people on how to use computers for their benefits. in addition, i would like to ring educational products to help children who love to play games at my station. Kindly assist me to achieve these goals, Thank you!
