About Me

I have worked in the retail industry for Ten years till I decided to start my own business. I reached this decision after careful analysis of our Kenyan market/economy and the overall Global scene.

CASE ESSENCE is my everything and I have a dream of growing it to a massive company. I am skilled in Fashion and Interior Design and Strategic management. I have Degree qualifications in these fields. This enables me to handle my business professionally and design unique products for my clients.

I am very hardworking and determined to achieve my goals.

My Business

Case Essence was established in 2014 to focus on Interior Design and Home Decor solutions to customers in Kenya. Case Essence is steadily acquiring clients locally into its family of valuable customers through identifying, delivering and servicing their specific needs.

The business currently offers Design-related solutions in a myriad of products. E.g; Laundry Baskets, Shoe racks, Magazine racks, Duvet Covers and Interior projects like Kitchens, partitions and space organization ideas.

Our entire focus is geared to helping our clients derive value from their investment so that they can become more successful in their core activities. This applies to Individuals, small businesses, major corporations and entire governments.

We promise to deliver high-quality products at very competitive prices.

Loan Proposal

I would like to purchase 20 meters of fabric for laundry baskets at a cost of $1.5 per meter.
Then I will also buy 15 meters of heavier fabric (Suede) for the poofs at $2 per meter.
I would then use $29 for stuffing and packaging materials.

I believe with the addition of the poofs to my portfolio that this will improve my turnover in a short time.

I would like to offer more variety to my clients by introducing a new product every now and then.
This year because of the help I have been getting from Zidisha, I was able to make a few shoe racks.

This loan will go a long way in helping me achieve these goals.
