About Me

I WAS BORN ON 06-02-1981 IN A SMALL VILLAGE CALLED CHAARIA IN MERU CENTRAL.I WENT TO SCHOOL IN CHAARIA PRIMARY FOR EIGHT YEARS,THEN PROCEEDED TO GITHONGO SECONDARY SCHOOL WHERE I COMPLETED MY SECONDARY EDUCATION .I LATER JOINED GITHONGO POLYTECHNIC WHERE I DID DESIGNS AND DRESS MAKING.
I LATER STARTED MY OWN BUSINESS IN EARLY 2010 .I AM HAPPY WITH THE BUSINESS AND JOINING ZIDISHA WILL BOOST ME ALOT.

My Business

I STARTED MY BUSINESS IN THE YEAR 2010 AT GITHONGO MARKET IN MERU CENTRAL. I DO DRESS MAKING AND OTHER CLOTHING DESIGNS.I AM HAPPY WITH MY BUSINESS.
I CHOSE THIS BUSINESS BECAUSE MY AUNT DID THE SAME BUSINESS AND USED TO TEACH ME HOW TO DO IT.I WAS VERY INTERESTED AND I JUST DECIDED TO DO THE SAME.
BASICALLY I USE MY PROFITS TO PAY SCHOOL FEES FOR MY CHILD AND ALSO REINVEST IN THE BUSINESS.

the seeds and fertilizers as well as the required pesticides and even any other unpredictable eventualities.The project may cost around 80 usd. i expect a turnover of 200usd.
