About Me

My family and I live in Miti Mingi Location in Nakuru County. I have completed high school education and later joined and completed college. I loooked stable job but I did not secure one. Out of my small savings, I started a small business that involes things like internet solutions such as online filling of forms and so on. from the income I get, I hope I will soon expand the business so that it supports my family members and even employ others. my expansion plan includes things like buying another computer, a printer, a photocopying machine and other necessary accessories.

My Business

My business involves giving local vilagers services such as KRA Pin, Cyber service and internet solutions. Before I started the business, I had a dream to make a one-stop shop for things like printing services, photography, photocopying services and so on, that is where I am heading to even now until my dream comes true. The services I offer are not available in any other nearby and I almost enjoy monopoly. My business makes a net profit of 15000 a month and I plan to use this money to repay my loan.

Loan Proposal

First I want to thank all Zidisha lenders for the first loan that i have happily repaid. It helped me to buy print papers and other necessary raw materials to serve my customers over the last two months December and January. This time I want to buy more stock of the same materials that include six reams of print papers (@ Kshs. 2700), internet for one month (@ Kshs. 2000), print ink (six bottles @ Kshs. 1200) photo papers (six reams @ Kshs. 1200), an additional table and chair (@ Kshs 39000 and stationery. This is my plan this year to expand my business so that more and more customers are served without failure. Thankyou all Zidisha lenders and may Zidisha live forever.
I really want to thank Teresiah, the person who invited me to Zidisha.
