About Me

I am Diana Ongaya from Busia County. I started my primary education and completed thereafter, i jointed secondary school and completed my fourth form. I joined college and graduated as a Secretariat. i hassled for one year without a job thereafter i decided to be attached at the Busia Post Office as a volunteer worker. I then decided to undergo training in computer application packages which helped me so much till today.
I opened my cyber cafe the year 2014. it grew well to an extend that i was attacked by robbers who snatched almost everything and left me with one computer and one printer.
i hustled so much to obtain some other equipment's as well as paying zidisha . It was so tough but i thank God i overcame.
The land in my area is too fertile for agricultural activities
I have two boys and one daughter still young and two adopted kids. I hope one of my boy will be an accountant and the other a doctor, while my daughter will be an engineer
When i am free i like reading the bible and teaching my children about the word of God. I also train my children how to cultivate

My Business

I have a cyber cafe. I offer typesetting, binding, lamination, scanning , photo printing and internet services. i also sale soda from Pepsi brand.
These services are useful to our daily living and the world of today is digitized and computer has made work easier to the lives of common mwanainchi.
I chose cyber cafe because i am a computer literate and as there is no job in Kenya i chose to employ my self and that was the business i saw i can manage well.
i can raise $ 1000 per week where by after deducting every expense i still can have $ 600 with me and that actually keeps my goal growing.
I am able to school my three kids by paying Kshs $1400 per term (three months) keep my business growing and provide my children upkeep well without problems. This loan will greatly improve my business hence increase in profit that will stabilize the business again. this is through acquisition of other computers and internet installation for easy browsing and research. with increased profits, I will be able to repay my loan without much difficulties.
