About Me

Am 25 year old entrepreneur. I was raised up in Western Kenya and studied both Primary and Secondary Education there. When I finished in 2010, I came to Nairobi to undergo my college education which I did successfully and graduated in 2011 though I had difficulties in raising my fee. Entrepreneurship was one of my dream careers since employment in Kenya nowadays is a tall order to get.

My Business

I started doing business of selling local foods while in college in 2011 January. I could cook some Githeri(mixer of beans and maize) and then sell to people a long the main Naivasha road. In 2012December, I improved my business from what I was earning.Per day, I could save 700kes until when I got a room near where I live, my earnings improved to 1300Kes daily. This was facilitated by the good savings, and adding up some new products to my business like cooked rice, Chips and fruit juices.I now want to improve it further to make it a hotel where people can sit and order whatever they want to eat. Please grant me.

Loan Proposal

Dear Lenders,
With the Loan of 32,000, I will spend the money in purchasing the the following:
2 children toys @ 23,000Kes
1 carpet @ 4000Kes
Renovations and labor for the children ground @ 6000Kes
After all these alterations, I can host cumulatively a total of 50 children per weekend and each children pays 500Kes. that will give me a total profit of 25000Kes per Sunday times 4 makes it 200,000.
This will also help me create job opening for 3 youth whom I will employ to handle the children at the children side.
Kindly support me on this and I will appreciate.

    Hi My Lenders, I would like to readjust my installments downwards from 1000 to 500. This is due to the current situation at my premise. Customers are not really flowing in as before and the consumption has gone down. I will readjust it again once things start to go well. Am committed to fulfill my promise of repaying my loan on time and as scheduled. Kind regards
