About Me

I am Lucy Gakii Isigi, i was born in Meru and started my primary education with struggle and later joined secondary school whereby it was really hard for me to complete my studies since my parents were not able to raise my secondary school fees. I borrowed some money from my uncle to start a small business of grocery whereby he needed the money back.
My children are working hard enough to be better persons in future and achieve more than i had achieved.
I like helping the needy.

My Business

Income is very little since i don't have enough money to purchase more goods. the goods are inclusive of vegetables, fruits and cereal whereby they are the basic needs of the people around my place of work.
I chose this kind of business since the area i am staying the business is helping them a lot. I am still struggling to pay school fees for my children by borrowing loan from banks where their interest is very high.

Loan Proposal

When i get the loan i will add cereals like beans,cow peas,green grams and other types in my store because the customers are always asking them.This will increase the customers in my store and also the earning will increase hence will be able to buy the medicine for my mum without straining.I believe and expect the profit will increase by 30% .Thanks and God bless you all.
