About Me

Hello Everyone,I am Chris Kingori, a Gospel Minister and an entrepreneur from Kenya. I'm from a very humble background in a village deep in Kiambu County. My Parents were blessed to have 3 children, my sisters and I.
Our mother was a primary school teacher where she accidentally fell into a water pond in school, drowned & passed on in 1992. I was in High school back then. My father was a farmer and I can say we survived by grace. He passed on some 20 years later in 2012. My secondary learning was a big challenge to us as my mother's salary would be used to pay for me and she was no more, luckily her benefits were paid and my whole school fees was paid. In 1995 I cleared school and in 1996 I joined some friends who gave me some temporal employment to later become permanent. While working here I enrolled myself in 3 colleges and did a driving course, & worked with them faithfully for 8 years. To date when they get much work they call me to assist.
Later on I moved from Nairobi to the central rift region of kenya where I wanted to open a flowershop but things were really hard in terms of rent and new town challenges. It's then I got employed as a security guard in 2006 september. I once again worked in dedication and my boss promoted me to be the regional manager of the company I was guarding.
The 2007 post election violence affected us and had to move towns. I love farming & leased land for farming cabbages, chilli ,Kales , spinach, french beans as well as source carrots and any other fresh produce my buyers would like. Most of my clients were sellers. I had 3 cows for a dairy farming project which with God's help I will still do in the near future.
I am currently running a funeral Services shop in the Capital City. I realized how hard it is to get a reliable funeral Service provider who can give quality and so I decided to be one. This is what I'm currently doing, God willing I will expand to other towns.

My Business

As I mentioned earlier, I have since left to the capital city and I'm running a funeral Services shop offering quality coffins and caskets, wreaths, hearse services, portraits and Eulogies. The business is picking up that means with sales from the store I could be able to pay my loan on a weekly basis.
I have the will to bring quality reliable send off services and packages Countrywide by Opening more branches. The kind of service many would not want to relate with but it's worth getting someone peace of mind and heart in their darkest hour of need.
My Coffins and caskets are made from locally available materials such as boards and timber. We also do spray for a clean smart finish.
I have a few clients who buy I'm wholesale and I'm working on marketing my work the more both online and offline. I am seeking some funding to help me expand to a new shop as well as increase my stock. Thank you lenders for accepting to assist me, I promise to keep my repayment schedule clean and constant.

Project Proposal

I am a funeral shop operator in Nairobi and would like to request for a small boost towards upgrading my stock. I'll appreciate so much for the assistance.

    I'm truly grateful for the funding. Though the farm was taken away, I did alot with the profits made in the early stage harvest. I am also sponsoring a young man in a Bible School.

    Greetings everyone,
    First of all I regret the delay in payments. I got sick then almost immediately the farm I had leased the owners demanded it back. So I went terribly down with stock and losses of the unharvested produce. However, I thank God I have made to clear the loan after a long time. I also has since moved to the Capital City and now on different projects. I'm still very committed to fulfilling the desires of creating employment for several people. I believe with time I will mange to do so. I'm getting on my feet once again. Thank you lenders for your patience and my apologies once again.

    I got some wild animals invade my farm due to the famine currently being experienced and they swept everything in the farm including what I would sell to repay so I would want to request I reduce to an amount I won't miss to pay.I am trying to see what else to compete with to make sure am up and running.
