About Me

I leah chuma born in 1976 in koibatek District of baringo Couty-Kenya. I am married, with 2 children . I am a Pharmacist by profession and currently running a chemist, I attended Kenya Medical Training College for my diploma and higher diploma in pharmacy, I then proceeded to Mount Kenya University for my undergraduate studies in Pharmacy. Due to lack of employment I ventured into private practice in the year 2008with my personal savings and family loan from my elder brothers. Wit the initial capital, I was able to rent a place and bought few drugs for a startup. I have been able to use the proceeds to educate my children, provide them an avarage living and paying fee for my brothers back at home. With the loans from Zidisha, I will be able to expand on the varieties of the drugs to serve the community effectively in an effort to reduce the disease burden.

My Business

II already have a running pharmacy, with stock valued at shs. 200000.
My sales per week is about shs.30500. We do weekly purchases with the proceeds. Out of he sales, I make a profit of about shs.2000-5000 weekly, which goes to support my family, by paying rent, school fees, buying food and providing other family basic needs. I am able to make some savings of between shs.500-800 per week, which will enable me to repay the loan in time and effectively.
With the loan, I will be able to stock other varieties which sometimes, I refer my customers to buy from other shops. they always get disappointed when i refer them to other shops.
