About Me

I am a Kenyan citizen holding a diploma in computing science. I have 5 yrs hand on experience in information management,basic computing skills,Network maintenance,data analysis and interpretation. I have strong analytical and statistical computing skills. my professional experience includes data entry and analysis,report writing and public relations.
I am competent in the following computer analytical and statistical packages MS office suite(ms word,MS excel and access). I have strong communication and interpretation skills. I also participated in community based program as a volunteer

My Business

I am a strong believer in handwork, resilience and patience in pursuit of my dream ambitions and implementation of set objectives. With the experience I have acquired I started a cyber business where people come to surf. I also offer other services such as photocopying, type setting,printing,coaching as well as on line article and academic writing jobs. I therefore wish to expand the business by adding more computers but am struggling with financing the idea.Therefore a loan will go along way in financing the business as well as helping me achieve my dreams.

Loan Proposal

I intend to use the loan to buy some inventories for my cyber. This will play a big role in service delivery to my clients. I recently upgraded the cyber with up to speed computers and the did a massive renovation to make it classy as well as stand out from the rest around here. I have also started hiring and training prospective candidates for online academic writing job that I secured thanks to Zidisha community for financial aid. At the moment I need to buy some inventory in bulk to minimize the expense of buying in small quantities. Buying this inventories in bulk will save me at least 32% of the total cost. Some of these inventories are printing papers,envelop, binding covers, toner and photo papers. The total
budget adds up to US Dollar 207, while I have raised about US Dollar 155 only. Therefore I have a deficit of Us Dollar 52. These will improve service delivery by reducing the prices by a small margin compared to competitor. It also gives me an upper hand by accepting bulky photocopiying and printing service. Your financial contribution will be highly resourceful and appreciated. Thank you in advance and God Bless you.

    I have financial constrains since because I used most of my savings to expand my business. I therefore wish to reduce my loan installment.

This was as a result of financial problem because of low client turn out during the holiday considering my client are students.I am now back on business and am happy I can increase my repayment installment. I am also happy that I was able to complete the academic writing course thanks to the loan I got from Zidisha community.

    Hi lenders
    I have talked to Njuguna and he felt sorry for not having made his repayment up to now.
    He plans to make some payments either today ,tomorrow or Saturday depending on the cash input by end of the day.
    He said that he normally pay covering all the arrears in the past.
    Lets hope he will act promptly.

    Hi Lenders, am sorry I have not been able to make repayments on time. I have been having some financial problems due to unavoidable family problem. During this time I was unable to reschedule the loan repayment where by I raised the matter to the zidisha technical team. I therefore wish to reschedule the payment meanwhile but I will be back on track soon. Thanks in advance.
