About Me

My name is Dearson, I was born in Tanga region in a family of 5 children. I am 28 years old. I am single and have no children.
I grew up in Tanga where I attended primary and secondary school. And then went to Lindi region to get fifth and sixth form education.
Until now, I am helping my parents to educate my youngest daughter. I am eager to develop my clothes and shoes business in order to educate my little girl and help my community as a whole.
When I was 23 years old, I opened a small clothes and shoes store project in my village where I sell women's and men's clothes and shoes.

My Business

I started my business 5 years ago here in Tanga. I have a small shop where I sell clothes and shoes to my community. I sell clothes and shoes that my community does not travel very far to buy products like I sell.
I work every day from 12.30 am to 3.30 pm, except Sunday for worship. I communicate with my clients through whatsapp. My business helps me improve the living conditions of my family.
I have many needs, which I cannot satisfy because my capital is small, so I cannot serve the customers of my community in terms of their size, this situation sometimes leads them to travel long distances to find products like the ones I sell. I would like to grow my business so that I can afford the size of the mass of people in my community who are my most customers.

Project Proposal

Your loan of 125 United States Dollars will help me buy a lot of clothes and shoes. If I sell a lot of clothes and shoes according to the needs of my community and its size, I will be able to make a profit that will enable me to support my family, but also my community, as the business will be fast and I will be able to hire other young people.
Thank you for your loan, I will grow my business by selling more. This benefit will benefit me and my family and the families of the young people I will hire.
Your loan will help improve the living conditions of more than two families and have a positive impact on the community where I live. Thank you for your help.
