About Me

I'm a single 22 years old, third born in a family of four from Sirisia village in Bungoma county western Kenya. I have been blessed by both parents who supported me with çare and also education where I started my primary education up to secondary education, but I didnt proceed due to lack of finance. One year after my education, I joined my older brother who was working in a slaughter in kasameni kwale county coast Kenya, and I work with him for one year. Due to work challenges like overworking and working during the night, I decided to start my own small butchery with small amount of money which I have invested and also a support from my brother. I like watching movies and listening to music during my free time.

My Business

I sell cow and sheep meat which is highly demanded, as big percentage of human beings use it as their best favorite food and also does not have a high competition, because it requires large amount of capital to start, so many people cannot afford it. I chose and like my business because it is non seasonal, it moves faster and has high profit. I spent my profit to support my parents ,to overcome my needs and to upgrade my business.

Loan Proposal

immediately after I get this loan I will be able to buy a meat cutting machine which is worth $250 where I will add to the small amount which I have invested and it will make my work more easier as I will be able to serve many customers at a time and reduce rushing.also I will of cutting meat in to small pieces to save cooking time to my customers
