About Me

I am the 1st born in the family of 8 children. Having completed form 4 education,i joined Kenya Polytechnic and atained Building & Construction Certificate.Deu to job scarsity,i started working as casual labourer in construction sites,and i managed to save some money which helped me to start up a small business. In the area where i live,most people do business and others partial farming.My 2 daughters still schooling in primary level,one wishes to be a pilot and the other one a doctor.I exploring business journals

My Business

I do interior fittings in both modern & old houses using woods,aluminium & glasses materials.Most clients prefer them because they light,quick to install & beautiful.Despite that am good in this work and its accountings are so straight forward i realized the demand is high than the fitters.The job cost $650 and it rewards me with $250 in a week.I usualy pay school fees,domestic use,transport, house rent & reinvest in growing my business.

Loan Proposal

The previous work that I did of house roofing, came out very well that I was able to get two more clients that wants me to start their houses right from foundation. Am already doing foundation of one house but need a financial boost of about150000kshs to purchase natural stones that need to be dressed for external wall decoration that will make the house look more attractive and natural.
To purchase the stones will cost me about 800$ and dressing will cost me about 700$.
The work is expected to boost my income by about 40%.
Thanks and God bless you all
