About Me

Hello lenders,

I am Derrick. I live and work in Nairobi. I work in a telecom industry, called Liquid telecom. I am passionate about technology and farming. I hope to get a loan from you lenders to buy a gift for my little sister who is joining University and I promised to buy her a smartphone. I am low on cash now but I do know there's nothing little that is really little. In real sense it still makes sense if you assisted me make this dream come true.

My Business

I have a job with Liquid telecom which pays approximately 350$ a month. I am also doing vegetable farming upcountry and I expect to earn at least 50$ per harvest. My cash flow is not the way I expected to be but I hope this loan will help me cover some of the expenses and will repay it with my monthly salary.

Loan Proposal

Well, times are not so rosy at the moment. I do get steady supply of income. But this time it has taken a little bit for cash to be send. Therefore being in a new community or place without transportation or something to eat is kinda tricky. I need this loan to use it for the next few days to support me as I await for my allowances to be disbursed to our accounts. I hope you will help me in regard to this. Thank you.
