I am 33 years of age born and brought up in Runyenjes, Embu County in the Eastern part of Kenya. I went to Muragari Primary School, then Muragari Primary School before proceeding to ST Marks Teachers College in Kigari where I graduated with a P1 teaching Certificate.
I started teaching practice in 2005 in various schools but the conditions were not very favorable for my personal growth. 3 years ago, I partnered with Mr. Charles Mwongo (the chairman of Shiners Academy) to start a kindergarten school. The turnout has been very good and particularly this year, we do not have enough space to host the pupils. The success of the business is a great inspiration for me and I look forward to be the best education service provider in the region. I am a resilient person who believes in handwork, prayers and commitment in anything I do.
I am married with one wife and a son. During my free time, I like reading in the library, having fun with my family or attending church services.
The Academy ( Shiners Academy) started in 2012 with 40 kids but we’ve grown to over 300 pupils as at Aug 2018. Mainly we offer normal day teaching classes to kids from the neighborhood and also offer remedial practice in the evening for needy pupils. We charge school fees of $30 per term, getting a gross of around $4500 in one term. After deductions the school makes around $1800 profit in one term (3 months). The school has 11 teachers plus the two directors (I and chairman).
Last year, we got registered with tge government to register the school because the performance for the kids is very good. If I got funded, I'd use the funds to build new classes that will reduce congestion in the school. I will be able to accommodate more kids and the school will have a stronger foundation.
Thank you very much for funding my previous loans. Kindly fund my loan so that i can expand the facility even further by building two more classes and be able to accommodate more pupils. This way, i will be able to manage my space well and i anticipate the revenue to increase by 20-30%.
