About Me

I am Charles Oriama, born in Kenya, Busia county. I am the second last of seven children of my dad, I was raised up in Busia county, attend Aterait primary school in 2005 later joined aterait secondary school. Due to poor background I was not able to proceed to the next level of my education since my dad succumbed in 2018 after my KCSE , my mum was not able enough to fund my education so I decided to find something to do for a living, that's when I moved to Naivasha kenya as my place of work and residence by now. I was able to get a job in 2020 in a private wholesale company called ''KANINI HARAKA ENTERPRISES'' where I work as a storekeeper by now. I am permanently employed.

My Business

I am a youth, permanently employed, I concentrate in starting my own self business though I don't have much savings by now to be honest I only got a job in late 2020, so I will be glad if Zidisha will help me achieve this my dream through their loan support, I am thinking about starting an electronic shop. Kindly I need Zidisha support on the other hand I am also a fan of farming so currently I support some of my farming activities at home, I had a tomato farm last two months which helped me raise around Ksh.90,000, I am planning another one this season. I will be glad to have Zidisha help me achieve all these my dreams and goals in life.
To any volunteers who are willing to support me through this financial goal kindly update me through+254746937209 or "[email protected]" I promise I will be supportive and productive working with you. Thanks in advance. In God everything is possible.

Project Proposal

Buying inputs for my tomato plants, like fertilizer, chemicals for pests control and labour. But I need atleast a bigger loan for this project, this is too low, I don't understand what factors are considered for credit limit? I always pay My loans on time. But I will try to manage this one
