About Me

My name is Brenda Koech and I am a single lady with no children currently living in Kericho. I am from a family of three consisting of my mother, my older brother and myself. My mother is a retired primary school teacher and my brother is a small scale farmer. My family currently resides in Rongai, Nakuru.
I received my primary school education in Kericho and after successfully completing my primary education, i attended an all girls high school in Nairobi for my secondary education. I later enrolled at a local university to pursue a Business degree in Marketing.

My Business

I recently started a new business venture selling liquid detergents and disinfectants.
I usually send for raw materials from Nairobi, measure and mix them myself, package and then sell them around Kericho town.
I pack the detergents in recycled plastic containers of 500ml and 1ltr but sometimes I get orders of 5, 10 and 20ltrs which usually go to offices and institutions around Kericho town.

Project Proposal

With the last loan I was able to buy raw materials to make 20 litres of liquid soap. I packed the soap in 1 litre containers and was lucky enough to sell all of them within the last two weeks.
With the current loan, I hope to buy raw materials to make at least 40 litres of liquid soap. This will ensure that I have adequate stock for my newly found customers
