About Me

This is George Muthoka born and raised in Kenya, East Africa. I am schooled to higher education level currently pursuing a master degree in project planning and management.

I have worked as a teacher in my early working career and as a social worker with various NGOs. Currently I do private businesses.

I am a family man with one wife and 4 Children.

My Business

I do various income generating activities

1. I am a consultant in management and capacity building field. Here I advertise my services and apply for consultation opportunities within and beyond Kenya

2. I do farming, I own land that I use to cultivate vegetables and keep livestock for the market.

3. I do supplies business in gypsum - a raw material used in production of cement, plaster powder, chalk, ceiling boards etc.

4. I am naturing a young business in construction as a contractor and property management.

I incur costs in material purchase, loading, transportation and legal fees. In average I make an income of kshs 200,000/= per month which I use for home supplies, education fees for my children and other disadvantaged children and support to my elderly parents as well as capital investments

Project Proposal

With this facility I will pay my gypsum supplier. A ton of gypsum is going at KES 1,100 and transported at KES 1,300 thus a total of KES 2,400. A 30 ton truck of gypsum would cost KES 72,000. This Loan will therefore pay for a full truck.
Each ton makes KES 400 at the factory thus making a total of KES 15,000 which can be done four times within the facility period.
Part of the gain will be ploughed back into the business to grow my capital base and consequently profit, while the rest will aid in home bills settlement such as water, electricity, school fees etc
