About Me

I am a Christian, husband and online techpreneur. I am the owner of freelancerkenya.com and have been an freelance writer, blogger and internet marketer for more than 3 years. My blog, freelancerkenya.com is a top blog that advices people on how to make money online. So far I have been able to help more than 500 people to start making a living online.

If I get the loan, I will invest it in expansion and marketing of the business. Specifically, I will be able to set up job alerts for people who are looking for online jobs, train more people and even help in basic setup.

Additionally, I will be able to better advertise my products which have been very profitable so far. This will help me in my personal finances as I also help others to start making money from home using legitimate methods.

My Business

I am a freelance writer, blogger and internet marketer. I earn through various avenues, including article writing, affiliate marketing, email marketing, ebook writing, training and consultancy.

These earn me $1000 and above per month.

Using the funds, I will be able to free up the time I use to write for clients and use it to market my services and help people who are stuck through email and physical consultation. I will be able to hire people to write different affiliate marketing posts which can earn me more passive revenue.

My current expenses include

1. Web-hosting through HostGator - $9.95 per month,

2 Email marketing through AWeber - $29 per month

3. Household expenses, approximately $500 per month

I therefore will be able to use my income to repay the loan.

Loan Proposal

I will use the loan to expand and market my online business. So far, my website, www.FreelancerKenya.com has been the go-to place for people looking for online work. There has been a lot of demand all over the country for training on skills such as article writing, blogging and internet marketing. I usually teach these skills on my website, social media and through offline seminars. This loan will help me expand my reach so that I can be able to carry out these trainings.

I will use the entire amount of the loan for advertising, getting the material for training and improving the design of my site. I believe this will improve my profitability by 20% per month. Thanks a lot in advance.
