About Me

my name is Dyness Robi and i lives in kiti near the estate of Nakuru county.am a single mother with two children who are in various secondary and primary school here in nakuru.After completing my primary education l was not lucky to join secondary school due to lack of school fees. this forced me to stay at home and help my mother with farming so as to provide for my siblings but after three years l got married and later we separated due to many challenges. l started the tailor business so as to earn a living and support my children.l normally use my income to pay school fees and develop myself economically.am also an active member of my local church.

My Business

i am currently operating a tailoring business which is doing well here at kiti.i also do daily grazing wheres i started the business in the year 1999 with one local dairy cow but later l sold and bought three grades cows that produce an average of forty liters per day.This is because the grades cows produce more milk than local breeds and are easy to manage.the business is good as there is a lot of demand for milk here in Nakuru due to its many residents.l sell the milk at ks 30 per liter and this give me an average of ks 28,000 per month after deducting the expenses.there is no much risk associated with the cows as long as they are well taken care of.if advanced with the loan l plan to buy another dairy cow and also stock my tailor business with all types of materials so that i serve more customers.

Loan Proposal

dear all, am deeply humbled for this far that l have come and for giving me an opportunity to develop my business.May Almighty God bless you for the good job that you are doing.am a dressmaker and will use the money to add more materials to my tailoring shop.This will enable me to increase the sales of my dresses and expand the business.

    Hi Drness, please update us on how things are going and why no repayments are being made. It is sad to loose this money since it will decrease other borrowers chance to get funding for their projects.

    Wish you all the best, Kristrun

    I suggest to Zidisha team to put into a black list all borrower who have not repayed their lending.

    No more lending for that have not updated their lending.

    One opportunity more for who updated but it permit a lend less than 50USD.
