About Me

I am Simon Wambugu Njugu, a moblie technicial in mukuyu area in Muranga, I am a graduate of arts and have a lot of passion on mobile technology. I deal with mobile software repair and upgrading. i love my job as in this field there are no many specialist on computerized mobile repair. I also operate an Mpesa shop alongside the the phone repair. the mpesa helps to market my phone repair shop and the phone repair also markets the mpesa, therefore the two are interdependent. it is in this business that my wife works and we get enough income to sustain my family of two children and one wife. am determined to grow this business and expand it to other areas as well as training for unemployed youth.

I have a gross capital of about three hundred thousands which includes two laptop computers, two flash boxes and a mobile phone that the mpesa runs on. the there is market for my services as competition in the area is not stiff.I can afford to service a loan with up to 5000 per month as premium without compromising the current level of consumption
