I have a great enthusiasm on business,
the challenges I have been going through gave me the ability to think on how i can support myself and also my society at large. I have worked in a number of organizations but my target as always been to start my own business.
i began small businesses like running a small cyber when i joined campus back in 2010 and it helped me a lot. also tried a number of activities like poultry farming, rearing sheep among other activities and finally this enabled me graduate in 2015, having successfully pursued a bachelors degree in mathematics and computer science.
My aim in life is to be successful and prove something to those people who know me and watch my steps; that everything is possible through handwork and determination to win.
I like listening to music and playing football
I am good in organizations of events, good leader and also in ICT related tasks such as web development, mobile app development among others.
I currently work as an ICT personnel, I also started farming this year. I also have a small poultry project which am working on expanding it. I also have a cyber cafe; photo on my profile. I liked this business venture due to a number of reasons; first is that it is within my field of study, secondly is that it earns me some money that it has enabled me provide food and accommodation to my two siblings in campus. Thirdly is that it does helps my community so much. There is currently great need for online service in my country like license acquisition and renewal, taxes pay, internet banking, e-learning as well as communication.
Currently I am providing a number of online services ranging from surfing, printing of cards, calendars, adverts as well printing documents for institutions. Thanks to Zidisha team.
The business is now paying pretty well. Now a new opportunity came in with quick succession, supply of stationary to nearby institutions. There are approximately 11 schools; 3 of them being secondary schools who need constant supply of stationery. I.e. exercise books, printing papers, office glue, pens, electronic calculators, files etc
I would buy some equipment for my business...more so I would invest more on network equipment like router, switch and computers. Apart from that the amount will subsidize to boast to cost of laying out the furniture and other infrastructure. I find it appropriate to buy the most important equipment first then i will wok on more equipment with my next loan. Thanks zidisha team and God help me through this.
