About Me

My name is Daisy Wanja John. I am married with two children. I come from Mayatta, from Embu/Nyamira road as you reach a centre called Maili Saba. You branch to your right take a rough road go past St. John secondary school, then from their to Karunga Centre. I live near the centre just next to a church called P.C.E.A Ruguru. If you ask for Baba Kiragu you will be brought at my home. I joined Embu primary school and later I joined st ann. Secondary school for my o levels. After school I joined Melvins College for a course in business management. Afterwards I worked for various employers until I decided to start self employment. This came as an idea when I realized in had to take care of my parents who were know getting aged and could not go on with their farming activities I also needed money to educate my children. I settled on a business of selling fresh fruits, vegetables, cereals , animals feeds and fruit nectar juices. Look forward to be a zidisha member.

My Business

My business is located in embu town. Outside biashara plaza I am specialized in selling fresh fruits fresh, fresh vegetables, cereals , animals feeds and fruit nectar juices. I started the business after I realized there is great demand for fresh fruits and juices at Embu town is a very busy town with a great population making it a hub of good business in almost all fields. My customers prefer my products rather than those of my competitors because they are fresh and tastier.I usually get my products from fruit farms which are as far as muranga county. My business does well and I am able to provide for my aged parents and educate childred. It is also from its proceeds that I was able to contribute together with my other family members to buy a piece of land at the outskirts of Embu town and built a semi permanent house where I live with my parents. I also supply my vegetables to the local hotels. Some of the challenges my business faces is luck of modern machine for food preservation. With zidisha platform I will be able to overcome this challenge once and for all.
