About Me

My name is Harrison Sabastian Mwangi. i live and Work at kilifi county in Kenya.
i was born 23 June 1976. i started schooling in 1982 and completed by studies in year 2001. Then i started training computers from 2002 up to 2009. from 2010 i joined teaching in secondary school up to now.

The income i have been generating is only enough to care for house rent, bus fare , food and clothing. it have been difficult to support my extended family like mother and my sisters. therefore i see it wise to engage in supplying bags, toothpicks serviettes. these are consumable in hotels, small cafes, chemist, butcheries. so far l have done supplies for one month. that is why i need capital. As i go to school my partner will supply. then weekend we join hands to supply.

My Business

currently am a teacher. so my source of income is not enough to make the end month meet. that is why if l supply bags and get at kes 15 per 100 and other hotel requirements like tooth picks then my financial position is stable. kindly your financial lending will make my business to grow and even offer employment. i see it improving in a way l can buy a small van because l have trusted customers . l plan to start small but according to may daily profits the business is growing. the business involve going round from place to place.

Loan Proposal

My experience is that apart from supplying hotel consumables i want to diversify to groundnuts. After buying 100kg for 150 dollars. I will be packing roasted groundnuts in small bags and sell 10 cents each.
The target consumers is shops, supermarkets and road side sellers. I have a cheap source of energy and a roaster and that is my advantage.
The income generated will increase my income to a great extent.

50 dollars will be used to pay for transportation of the raw groundnut to my place of job i.e Mazeras in Kilifi from Mombasa or Nairobi.
