About Me

I am married with four children, three boys and one girl. The two boys are in Eldoret College and one girl and one boy are in a local secondary school.i was born in Elgeyo, Marakwet district and i went to Iten primary school in 1966 where i finished my primary school education in 1970, i was a very good runner, by then i also used to play football. I moved from I moved from Iten in 1986 and came to live in Nakuru in a village called Morop. Am a real residential in this village. I own a small shop located in this village where i earn for my family. Am struggling to educate my children since i did not proceed further with my education during those early days. I would like to learn more by enrolling in a college where i can get to have an opportunity to study. Morop is just a neighboring village next to kiptangwanyi trading centre, i am happy to get zidisha news from my friend, Abraham Mwangi who is also our group chairman.in fact i am one of the sinior community official I am the chairman of Divisional peace committee and Mr Abraham is my vice chairman and we are working together with the provincial Administration and we are doing good in keeping peace in this area.

My Business

Am running a small shop here at Morop trading centre the business is doing well the demand of the comodities are in a very high demand i also own a cereal store whereby i buy cereals during this season n sell the product when the demand is high i usually earn from 8000ksh to 10000ksh per month with my business.during this time i need more stock to serve more costumers the demand of commodities are in a very high demand. i started the business in the year 2004,and since there were no shops when we started the business in this area.The shops have increased and there are several. One of the challenges i used to face, was transportation but am happy i'v managed to buy a new motorcycle which i use to transport goods from kiptangwangi trading center which is about 2 kilometers to Morop. I will be glad if i get a loan from zidisha which will enable me to expand my business.one of the challenges which have been facing this business is transportation most of my clients are willing to take commodities from my shop due to low prices they usually collect my goods which i have already taken from Nakuru,I am planning to open another to our nearby trading centre.
