About Me

Hello Lenders!

My Names are Isaiah Githaiga an accountant by profession. I hold a Bsc BA (USIU), MBA (UoN) and a CPA (K) Finalist. It has been a tough Journey which I have completed courtesy of my Family members and relatives who encouraged me never to give up despite the many financial challenges I faced.

Investing in education has helped me start an online business consultancy which runs via oDesk (Now Upwork) market place. I offer the following virtual services to various clients around the Globe:
* Income statement preparation from incomplete records.
* Bank reconciliations
* Accounts receivables and payable management.
* Payroll and payment processing
* Full bookkeeping services using Intuit Quick-books, Wave and Xero.
* Academic and Web research
* Data entry and analysis using Microsoft excel spreadsheets and SPSS
Currently I am serving ten clients who have extended a long term relationship. When I have too much workload I have an assistant who help me out in meeting clients’ deadlines.

The mission of the business is to grow and create employment for fresh university graduates and also teach them skills on how to successfully start an online business like mine. This will alleviate poverty and create a productive society. I have learnt to be successful online entrepreneur through the hard way and I believe with the experience I have gathered in the past few years, I can effectively teach the youth and impact on their life.

Thank you
Isaiah Githaiga

My Business

When I started my business in 2012, It was quite challenging and never thought I would succeed.On oDesk (Now Upwork) there is too much global competition from Contractors from all over the world.Cutting an niche requires dedication and commitment.I practice as a Virtual Accountant,currently serving clients from Canada,United States,Australia and Europe.

Offering quality services have enabled me to get repeat orders and thus I am usually busy throughout the year.

Project Proposal

Dear Lenders.

We are grateful for the support you have shown us through the years.
Our dream of owning a home is now a reality. As you can see on the photo, the three-bedroom family house is now fully complete and we have already moved in. The next step is constructing two units of two bedroomed house for rental purposes, on the remaining part of the plot. This will boost our income by $300 monthly, part of which will be used in expanding our business and the rest towards loan repayment.

We are hereby leveraging on your support by financing a loan of $1,500 for ground breaking work. The loan will be utilized as follows:

* Digging trenches $200
* 1 Lorry of Ballast $300
* 1 Lorry of Sand $330
* Foundation stones $250
*Machine Cut stones $420
Total $1500

Thanking you in advance.

Regards
Isaiah Githaiga
