About Me

My name is Kache Kenga Kalama. I am thirty-nine years old. I am a mother of three children. I went to primary school but I did not make it to secondary school. I would like my children to go up to university.

My Business

I am a small business lady in our local area. I own a small shop where I sell variety of goods. Most of the goods I sell are food stuffs such as maize flour, fruits and vegetables among others.

Loan Proposal

My shop has been doing very well only that it has been on a small scale. This time round I want to expand my shop.
I will therefore use 20% of the loan to renovate the shop and increase the number of shelves. The remaining 80% will go to the purchase of a larger stock. This will increase the profit I have been making to almost 290%.

About Me

My name is Kache Kenga Kalama. I come from a humble back ground. My friends call me Triple K. I am a Kenyan by birth. I am married currently a mother of three ; two boys and one girl. My educational journey was not not easy. I went to primary school through hardship and after struggling I made it to secondary school where I also struggled by hooks and crooks until I finished my secondary education too. Unfortunately I did not manage to proceed to college because of financial constraints in our family. I got employed and later I was happily married and after that I also managed to start my own business. I would like my children to go up to university therefore I will do anything possible to ensure that they acquire quality education.

My Business

I am a small business lady in our local area. I started business after saving for a long time from my job where I was employed as shopkeeper. I now own a mini shop where I sell variety of goods. Most of the goods I sell are food stuffs such as maize flour, fruits and vegetables among others. The main reason for starting this business was that; there was high demand of these goods and there was no nearby shop so people were travelling over long distances to get such goods.

Loan Proposal

My shop has been doing very well only that it has been on a small scale. This time round I want to expand my shop.
I will therefore use 20% of the loan to renovate the shop and increase the number of shelves. The remaining 80% will go to the purchase of a larger stock. This will increase the profit I have been making to almost 290%.
