About Me

My name is Ken Symon Muriuki, a 25 year old from Kenya. I am a graduate in design, but in this country, education doesn't seem to help out, so I decided to start up a business of my own. I have a general stores shop, where I sell almost everything, from cereals, to household goods. It is picking up very well and hope to expand it with time.

My Business

I started up a retail general stores shop, where I sell goods varying from cereals, to household items such as flour, sugar, rice. Aside, I have an M-Pesa service, which generally is mobile money, offering clients withdrawal and deposit services through their phones. The business is three months old and has picked very well. My wish is to expand it further so that I can offer wholesale products.

Project Proposal

I have decided to start up a gym and fitness at my town of residence since there's none in the area. I've already spotted a place and begun renovations. Gym equipment are however a bit expensive and I've only procured about 40% of the needed equipment, and I'm urging for your help to raise funds to procure the rest. Once the gym is up and running, I'm sure of raising enough funds to pay up on time
