About Me

My name is Ekira Wairimu Thiong’o I live in Bahati in Nakuru. Ihave 8 children all are grown ups and they have finished school. I was born in muranga county in place called kiarutara. i went to a school called kiarutara primary school i went gatura secondary school. then after school i got married when i started farming business with my husband at nakuru kamiruri. later on started shop in my home which iam operating up to date. i had to work hard to raise money to start a shop because by then farming was not upgraded so i was getting small income. in the place where i live we are different communities(tributes) and we live peaceful.

My Business

I have a business of a shop in my plot where I live I sell different types of goods so it is a general shop where you buy almost everything that is needed in a house. This gives me an opportunity to serve many customers and so a good returns. I am able to do others cores in the home while still operating the shop so, like now I am able to keep another business of poultry layers chickens and also I am able to manage my farm and my cows. All this businesses give me an income of about 800000. This is the money which I use to feed my family and pay my monthly bills. i use my profit for home improvements , reinvestment in growing the business and others.

Loan Proposal

i would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to God and also to thank Zidisha team for the good work you are doing of lending people loan.
