I have been able to finance my laptop project here and first digital camera , a fast food cafe,an online store where i sell mobile and smart phones and lastly an online spare-parts business. Thank you to the Lenders who helped me, be blessed.

My Business

For the last 2 years with the help of funding from i have been running my online spareparts business , and a small store for sales support and an online shop on Jumia Kenya and facebook .We are glad that i was able to find a location on Mombasa road, Maasai road, where offline sales take place.Currently , everything has been set up including a sales support shop and the business is a making sales and business is good.
I have registered a business name, a bank account and my business is legal and trustworthy.
The business deals with sales of fast moving car parts such as car service parts ( spark-plugs, motor oil air and oil filter , tyres , car safety accessories such as reflectors, first aid kits. Car windows tints, headlamp tail lamps and bulbs etc.

This loan will help boost the current stock which went down due to low sales during the COVID19 period and also help the business have running capital.

Loan Proposal

Am requesting for funds to fund the purchase of a refurbished laptop at a cost of 23,000 Kenya shillings
The loan funds will go towards financing 100% of the new laptop

This is how I plan to pay back
Ideally on a good freelance e week I make around $30 to $100 per weeks most of which goes towards daily upkeep and some will go towards the weekly repayment of the Loan and investment in the phone business.

Am Hoping You will consider my request
